An Amazon Best Book of the Month, October 2013: The thing that always amazes me about New York is that it works at all:
so many people, stacked on top of each other in apartments or wedged side-by-side on the streets, that it once
seemed--to my admittedly West Coast eyes--that there could be no room to breathe, to stretch, to be human in such a
seemingly inhumane environment. Even the garbage (the literal garbage; no Travis Bickle allusions here) is pushed to the
sidewalk--there’s not even space between buildings to hide it. But once I’d been there--admittedly late--I understood
that it’s the people themselves that make it work; that diversity and self-expression (not to mention the necessity)
create a kind of space on their own. Brandon Stanton gets it. His thousands of not-quite-candid street portraits of New
Yorkers (and accompanying captions, usually from the subjects themselves) have made his Humans of New York blog both
poignant and extremely popular. And now, his book of the same title collects 400 of his best portraits, telling small
stories that are outsized in their humor, candor, and humanity. As it turns out, inner-space is a dimension all its own,
and it counts, too. --Jon Foro
