About This Book
New York Serenade is homage to the city of New York.
The project consists of fifty pictures that share stories we believe are relevant to describe the continuous changing of the historical sites, the urban landscape, and the different forms of art that the city itself produced over the years. Featuring historical places that have been fundamental in the history of New York’s music scene and no longer exist; streets, buildings, and boroughs described in their work by great New York artists; and places where everything started or everything happened for the city’s most representative artists. Our aim is to write a story about history, art, music, and New York City, and create a journey through this tradition, around historical places that are holding memories of the past while the future is written somewhere else.
