New Yorkers

Add to Calendar Europe/Paris New Yorkers

Over the last 20 years, New York City has been convulsed by enormous challenges: terrorist attack, blackout, hurricane, recession, pandemic. This work offers a grand portrait of the irrepressible city and a hymn to the vitality and resilience of its people. Craig Taylor spent years meeting New Yorkers – rich and poor, old and young, native and immigrant – and getting them to share indelible true tales. Here are the voices of those who propel the city each day – subway conductor, nurse, bodega cashier, electrician who keeps the lights on at the top of the Empire State Building – as well as unforgettable glimpses of the city, from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade by a balloon handler to the Statue of Liberty by one of its security guards.
