We’ve been lov­ing the new book, Mag­net­ic City: A Walk­ing Com­pan­ion by New York Mag­a­zine archi­tec­ture crit­ic Justin David­son, a Pulitzer Prize win­ner. Mag­net­ic City is an insider’s guide to the archi­tec­ture and plan­ning of New York that includes pho­tographs, maps, and orig­i­nal insights from the design­ers, vision­ar­ies, artists, and writ­ers who built the city and lived in it. This lit­er­ary achieve­ment is a per­fect bal­ance of his­tor­i­cal research, philo­soph­i­cal reflec­tion and guide to the city. Many of its themes have become even more apro­pos in the cur­rent climate–themes of diver­si­ty, of rebirth, of extreme contradiction–as if New York was sim­ply reflect­ing greater forces bub­bling up with­in the coun­try.
