Book Review: Humans of New York: Stories, by Brandon Stanton

index (2)This book grew out of the five years that Stanton has maintained his blog of the same name. During that time he has interviewed and photographed more than ten thousand of New York City’s 8.5 million residents. Each of them, as does each of us, has their own story. Ranging from a line or two to a few paragraphs along with the photo, the entries are sad, tragic, hopeful, silly, serious, weird, just all over the spectrum. I found reading this pretty addictive.

Rating: * * * A good read
