No other American city dazzles during the winter holidays like New York, with its magical store windows, larger-than-life street decorations, and brilliant, tree-lit plazas. New York City photographer Betsy Pinover Schiff has gone uptown to Harlem, downtown to the 9/11 Memorial, and to all the boroughsaon foot, by subway, by double-decker bus, and on a tour boat decked with lights and garlands -- to capture the city's creative spirit. Photographed mostly at night, scenes range from Rockefeller Center's ice rink and a Jewish Festival of Lights ceremony, to a puppet procession and elegantly decorated homes, offering a new, intimate, and heartwarming sense of the city. The book also contains a foreword by New York Times reporter James Barron, quotes from notable New Yorkers, and a map of the image locations. 'Tis the Season New York is a beautiful keepsake of the Big Apple, burnished and bedazzled during the most festive time of the year.
