Art Spotting: The City Out My Window

Written by Casey

Matteo Pericoli’s book The City Out My Window

From Matteo Pericoli, the celebrated author of Manhattan Unfurled, comes a unique collection of illustrated cityscapes. In these intimate drawings of window views, Pericoli captures the essence of the city by showing us what New Yorkers see when they look out their windows. The City Out My Window shows us a series of private New Yorks, as seen by Tom Wolfe, Tony Kushner, Nora Ephron, Stephen Colbert, Richard Meier, Oliver Sacks, Mario Batali, David Byrne, and other artists, writers, and thinkers who help make the city what it is. The book includes their comments on what they see out their window and is introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger.

“Delightful paean…elegant.” — New York Times

“[An] amazing book.” — The New York Daily News

“New Yorkers will never look out their windows the same way again.” — Women’s Wear Daily
