It has been over ten years since TASCHEN’s original New York Interiors
was published and while much has changed in the Big Apple since then, the city is still bristling with an exciting and eclectic mix of cutting-edge movers and shakers—a fact that is quite perfectly reflected in its interiors. New York has long been a magnet for artistic people, and since 9/11, the city has become less money-driven and more creative, with an unprecedented influx of graphic designers, interior designers, artists, gallerists, and collectors. Across the river from Manhattan, trendy, less-expensive Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Williamsburg offer a convenient taste of life just outside the fast lane.
Handpicked by editor and author Angelika Taschen, this spanking new collection of interiors explores an array of homes as dizzying as the diversity of the New Yorkers themselves. Peek into the apartments of artist Terence Koh
, artist and director Julian Schnabel
, musician Rufus Wainwright
, porn diva Vanessa del Rio
, and actress Julianne Moore
—among many others—to get an idea of the myriad and marvelous ways New Yorkers love to live.
