First it lets you fall in love with it, and lets you think it loves you back – that’s how New York breaks your heart, ac­cord­ing to Bill Hayes’s new pho­to­graphic ex­plo­ration of the city and its dream­ers. The Big Ap­ple’s sul­try al­lure is cer­tainly in ev­i­dence in this book, but what re­ally brings the tex­ture of New York to life is the per­son­al­i­ties that in­habit it, in all their joy­ful, dis­tracted, flir­ta­tious and ex­pres­sive glory.

How New York Breaks Your Heart by Bill Hayes (Blooms­bury, £20) is out now
