New York is like an infinite onion that you discover layer after layer, never tiring of peeling. You get to know it step by step, enchanted by its colours, its light, the sunsets and sunrises, by the ever-changing colour of the sky, as mutable as the wind. In the shadow of its breathtakingly tall skyscrapers, its buildings, its townhouses, as you hurry from one of the varied shop windows to the next. In its elegance and glamour, the formality of its museums, great temples of culture, in the magic of evocative moments and glimpses of street life. Indeed, New York does not actually exist, because there is not only one New York City, but ten, one thousand, one hundred thousand cities within the city, all jostling and intersecting each other, all connected to each other, in a melting pot of people, traditions and cultures that take you on a journey to every part of the world. This latest addition to the successful "CubeBook Collection" is dedicated to the discovery of this multifaceted city that is in a state of continuous transformation.
