For adults only? No, not only. Children will also enjoy recognizing what's where in the vast and ever changing city of New York. It is quite possible they will astound their elders with a comprehensive knowledge. Take a walk around the neighborhoods within these pages, and see what you find.
Why I made this book? John Steinbeck has the answer: "New York is an ugly city, a dirty city. Its climate is a scandal, its politics are used to frighten children, its traffic is madness, its competition is murderous. But once you have lived in New York and it has become your home no place else is good enough!" (Autobiography: Making of a New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, February 1st, 1953)
Actually I am working on another photo book with portraits of a pretty special species - the New Yorker. City dwellers of all kinds spread out over the pages of this new book which is entertaining and touching at the same time.

WHAT OTHERS SAY:
”Many New Yorkers, not least those who came from somewhere else, take an enormous pride in knowing their city from inside out, and will love the challenges provided in 'Guess Where in New York?'
As a photographer, I’m particularly impressed by the idiosyncratic flair of the imagery. Janko Puls approaches the city with a wonderfully fresh eye - a little reminiscent of Robert Frank and his all-time classic, 'The Americans.'”
Bo Zaunders, photographer & author
"Janko Puls sees the city; he doesn't just look at it. [...] As the author of books on architecture, I note in Janko Puls a similar soul. His active and curious mind searches out the nooks and crannies, as well as the icons, of our wonderful town, in a most original way."
Roxie Munro, artist, illustrator & author
"This is a beautiful book of beautiful photographs, doubly engaging and amusing because of its gentle, charming interactive game. Further, it reminds all of us to take a little time to observe and to appreciate our fair surroundings."
Susan L. Roth, illustrator & author
