"For the New Yorker with 2,000 followers: New York City on Instagram, edited by Dan Kurtzman, is an idiosyncratic 21st-century collection in blazing color."
The New York Times

"New media and old meet within the pages of Rizzoli's New York City on Instagram, which takes some of the best images online and preserves the photos in a hardbound book. New twists on old scenes are found throughout the book, which was clearly put together to honor a social medium that has revolutionized photography by making it more accessible."
