Walks in My New York

Speed means everything in New York. If you are strolling, you are sure to be a tourist, because New Yorkers have their own brisk pace. The street is a corridor for transportation where one gets from one place to another in a hurry.

Walks in My New York

The acclaimed artist and architect shares a strolling, personal tour of a city that has become his creative muse and home away from home. Over the years, Danish architect and artist Mikael Olrik has developed a special relationship with New York City, finding endless inspiration in the vibrant and ever-changing metropolis. In Walks in My New York, Olrik shares his fascinating perspective on New York life through a combination of watercolor, photography and text. Olrik explores the city with the broad view of an architect, the specificity of an artist, the straight-forwardness of a photographer, and the companionable text of a diarist. He captures everything from street scenes of everyday life to pastoral views of Central Park and landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge. Small maps accompany each entry and act as a sort of ‘GPS’ in print.
