Summary
"New York Nocturne is the first book to examine how the art of the gaslit and electric city evolved, and how representations of nighttime New York expanded the boundaries of modern painting, literature, and photography. Exploring the myriad images of Manhattan after dark, New York Nocturne shows how writers and artists took on the city's nocturnal blaze and transformed the scintillating landscape into an icon of modernity." "Abundantly illustrated, New York Nocturne includes original readings of works by a number of writers. Collectively, they tell a fascinating story about the relationship between night, art, and modern urban life."--BOOK JACKET
