I have that book and it is wonderful. It only covers the park. Maybe you can spring for two and get one on Central Park and one on the city also.

New Yorkers are very proud of our city. In most bookstores, from the local independents to Barnes and Noble there are usually sections devoted exclusively to books about New York. Barnes and Noble has a very large selection to choose from.

how about making your own with your own pictures? We've done several of these now and they're lovely. We use photobox.co.uk and bonusprint.co.uk but I'm sure there must be similar companies operating in Canada. They cost around £30 ($70 usd)

You will also find great books in all the gift shops in the museums and the NY Public library.

The Strand is the largest bookstore in NYC (and maybe the country) and is a destination in itself.

and other options online
