From the moment you open the first page you’ll be enchanted by the otherworldly view of New York City. From photographs of well-known parks, to floral shops and store fronts like Sezane, you won’t want to put the it down until you’ve looked through the entire book.
For the floral enthusiast this book also includes a field guide to help you find and identify the most commonly seen blooms along with a helpful list of locations and vendors. Also, if you’re a floral arranging novice, there’s a tutorial on creating your own bouquet from blooms found in the city.
New York in Bloom leads you on a beautiful floral tour of the metropolis – post stylish floral studios and corner shops overflowing with fresh-cut blooms, through bustling flower markets, to blooming trees and lush public parks.
With her sumptuous photography and lyrical text, Georgianna Lane reveals the unexpected, softer side of New York by juxtaposing floral beauty with exquisite botanical details found in the city’s iconic architecture.

This close up featuring a gorgeous Pink Ranunculous Blossom has to be one of my favorite ‘close ups’ from the book. Not only is it pink (one of my favorite colors) but it’s also one of my favorite flowers as well.
Sezane has one of the dreamiest storefronts in the city. Don’t you agree?
Beautiful blooms in the middle of the city.
A Word from the Author:
When I first conceived Paris in Bloom, I always envisioned it as the first in a series of “Cities in Bloom” blooms. The floral wonders and motifs of New York City might not come to mind as easily as those found in Paris, or London, but my love for the sheer magnificence of the city inspired me to create this volume and place it firmly in its rightful place in the series.
My language is flowers and thus I set out to discover where in the vast metropolis that language was spoken most eloquently – among the parks and gardens, avenues and alleys, markets and bodegas, soaring architectural wonders and gritty streets. And the most I looked the more I found, and strived to capture what to me is the floral essence of the city, a perhaps unexpected viewpoint that I hoped will be, for visitors and residents alike, a source of delight and pride.
