City of Poems
The paperback edition of City of Poems contains all the images and poems from the original hardcover, however the images were edited into diptychs so the turning of every page opens a spectacular view into the exhilarating heights of New York City.
This book is a celebration of the colossal grandeur and the dynamic drive of New York City. It is a personal testimony that the heart of this city is found in the life of every resident and every visitor who has ever gazed at the glint of sunlight at the tips of the towers and raced with the exhilarating pace of this tireless place.
On March 30, 2011, Garrett Buhl Robinson arrived in New York City. After flying into La Guardia Airport, he took the bus to 125th Street and then the 6th Train downtown to Bleecker Street and stayed the first week at Bowery Street. Through the years, he has bounced around the city, living at various places, while steadily promoting his work from his little bookstand on 5th Avenue. This book marks the 10th anniversary of his arrival in New York City with a celebration of one of the most spectacular places on the planet through images of the city and poems about the struggles of trying to make a living with nothing but a dream.
