Murals of New York: The Best of New York's Public Paintings from Bemelmans to Parrish is more than just pretty pictures of wall art (though it has a lot of that too). The locations chosen, though public, are not your highly populated tourist traps. The edition includes expected murals like the ones at the Metropolitan Opera, the Chrysler Building, and Christie's, but there are also some gems like the public art at the legendary Bemelmans, Bronx General Post Office, and Mark Morris Dance Center. This book contains beautiful murals by Keith Haring, Sol LeWitt, Ezra Winter, Roy Lichtenstein, Marc Chagall, and many others, photographed by Joshua McHugh, along with thorough descriptions of each and information about the sites.
