New York: Behind Closed Doors looks at a cross-section of great living spaces created by New Yorkers. It's about the art of living in this seething city, the ambition and zest of New Yorkers for their surroundings, and the stories connected to both people and places. Ranging from James Fenton's fantasy palace in Harlem to the Tribeca loft that provides a live-work-play space for the high-flying architects of MPA; from the glamor of Kenneth Jay Lane's Murry Hill apartment to Susan Sheehan's Arts and Crafts haven near Union Square; from Hamish Bowles's "tiny Atlantis" in Greenwich Village to the ivory tower that is the Modulighter Building in midtown Manhatten, these homes inspire creativity. From spaces that are like museums for living in to brownstones in Brooklyn, this is a visual, literary and idiosyncratic feast of remarkable houses and apartments in New York.
