Andy, Andy everywhere. Twenty-three years after his death, few figures hover over New York Cityâ€”its art, its street life, its commerce, its creativity, its nightlife, its myths, and its idea of itselfâ€”like Andy Warhol. Andy Warholâ€™s New York City provides a panoramic view of the artistâ€™s life there from the fifties through the eighties. Eighty sites associated with the artist careen delightfully from coffee shops to museums, from disco clubs to churches, with dozens of glamorous and gritty places in between. Fashionistas will love reading about the rare pretzel-print dress Warhol designed (now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art) and seeing him looking like a character out of Mad Men as heâ€™s photographed on the steps of the Met; cineastes will be riveted to the behind-the-scenes stories of his films; art lovers will appreciate the comprehensive listing of his many shows; and New York City history buffs will savor glimpses of the cityâ€™s iconsâ€”vanished (Schrafftâ€™s), current (Serendipity 3), and never-realized (the Andy-Mat). There are sidebars on Warholâ€™s residences, favorite restaurants, and factories. Brief biographies of figures in the book familiarize the reader with the revolving cast of glittering characters that enter and leave the stage as Warholâ€™s story unfolds.
Nine original drawings in the book were made specially for Andy Warholâ€™s New York City
by the artist Vito Giallo, a former studio assistant of Warholâ€™s who executed hundreds of Warholâ€™s ink blot drawings, and who later owned the antique store where Warhol bought thousands of items that were posthumously auctioned at Sothebyâ€™s.Â
