The Bridges of Central Park

September 11, 2006

An old friend from high school, Paul Gaykowski, has co-authored a wonderful new book, [The Bridges of Central Park](http://www.amazon.com/Bridges-Central-Park-Then-Now/dp/0738538612/sr=1-1/qid=1157975210/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-9588498-9161755?ie=UTF8&s=books). Nearly two-years in the making, it chronicles, in a “then and now” format, the popular, hidden, nifty or just plain ignored bridges that dot Central Park. The book is printed on a substantial coated stock, overflowing with rich duotone photographs, and is layed out in a format that invites you to jump around and discover the bridges in a manner not unlike a real walk through the park.

If you love bridges, the Park, or are just a plain old geek for vintage photography, this is a great read.
