Iconic New York: The Best New York Souvenir
Look for the attack raccoon in Central Park, the climber on the New York Times building, and the Naked Cowboy in Times Square. And at every turn, watch out for pedestrians, poodles, prams, and pretzels!
Painstakingly researched, drawn, and composed, Iconic New York™ spent two and a half years on the drawing board. Esquer and his design team chipped away at the map of Manhattan, methodically converting the city’s most beloved architecture and artifacts into artful graphic icons. Slowly but surely, from Washington Heights to Battery Park, they meticulously assembled the icons into a collage forming the shape of Manhattan itself.
