Money Jungle

money-jungle

This book, Money Jungle, by Benjamin Chesluk (with photos by Maggie Hopp) is a book singularly about one of the few individual places people think of when they think about New York City: Times Square.

This book talks about, and shows via Maggie Hopp’s pictures, exactly what Time Square is, and was.

One of the things mentioned that I never thought about was the idea of air rights. The fact that someone could claim ownership of the air above a place seemed foreign to me.

In all, this book gives a very detailed and behind the scenes look at one of NYC’s most iconic areas.
