Vom Verlag: The eighty-sixth floor of the Empire State Building offers a panorama of New York City and the entire metropolitan region that is world famous. There is only one problem with the view if you are the average visitor or tourist -- the odds are you don't know what you are looking at. If you ask someone, you will usually be told the right thing. Frequently, however, you will be given misinformation by well-meaning but ill-informed people, or you will simply be met by a chorus of "I don't knows."

That's the situation that John Tauranac discovered while researching his critically acclaimed book, The Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark. Brooklyn might be identified as New Jersey, the Chrysler Building as a church ("Well, look at that steeple!"), and the sign for the New Yorker Hotel identified as the offices of The New Yorker Magazine. He set out to do something about it.

The result is New York From On High: A Guide to the View From the Empire State Building, which shows the views and identifies the places of interest, with a dash of local history thrown in for zest.

The views are arranged as if you were walking around the building starting at the north, with a view from each of the eight compass points -- north, northeast, east, etc. There is a view of the scene in color, followed by the same view in black and white with all the points of interest identified. First you see the view, then you are told what you are looking at.

The spreads measure 14 by 11, which provide the whole sweep of each view. There are also close-up views of Midtown and Lower Manhattan, and four views looking down, which are also followed by black-and-white views with their respective IDs.

There is a brief history of the building, and there are three maps especially designed for the book. The maps descend in geographical hierarchy from the metropolitan area (inside front cover) to the Island of Manhattan (page 1) to the immediate neighborhood around the Empire State Building (inside back cover). In each case, the Empire State Building is at ground zero. Short of having an informed and knowledgeable "live" guide, this book is all you need.
