QUIET NEW YORK: Meet the artist, Siobhan Wall
Please join us as we present the new book, Quiet New York!
It’s the city that never sleeps –but within New York’s skyscraper canyons and bustling boroughs there are surprisingly quiet places – unknown to many natives and virtually unimaginable to most visitors. Quiet New York is a guide to that other, hidden city– places of sanctuary and worship, eclectic shops and cafes, libraries, galleries, and waterfront parks. Profiling over 120 quiet places and covering all five boroughs, with evocative photographs and a short descriptions (including travel, access and contact details) Quiet New York reveals the tranquil corners of the world's most stimulating city.
SIOBHAN WALL is a writer, artist and author of Quiet Paris, Quiet Amsterdam and Quiet London. She has worked as a senior lecturer at universities in London and Oxford. Her paintings have been shown and collected in London.
