The parks featured in this fantastic collection may be from across the globe, but they share one thing in common: They are safe havens from the bustle of urban life that offer an intimate connection to the city they call home. This is not just a book of pretty pictures; each vignette in City Parks is a personal love letter. From Zadie Smith to Bill Clinton, every city dweller (famous or not) has their own favorite slice of paradise. Also, can I just say, I loved this book. I could write 500 words on how great it was. And if I don’t visit Highline soon, I might cry.
