Featuring more than 100 photos and quotes from cats in America’s most glamorous city, Felines of New York exposes the furry underbelly of New York City’s most glamorous, self-important residents. Where the humans of New York are accomplished, interesting, thoughtful, creative, and even sometimes tragic figures, the cats are simply cats. They do not stand in line for brunch, or have season tickets to the Met, or go indoor-rock climbing in Brooklyn. They do not shop at thrift stores or nibble finger sandwiches at the Russian Tea Room. And they certainly do not give a flying f*ck about the Yankees. No, the felines of New York bathe, purr, bask languidly in the sun, and occasionally cast baleful glances at the humans who provide them food and shelter. They are proof that behind every New Yorker, there lays a cat just waiting to destroy their IKEA futon and then eat their faces off when they die.

The story of Mott Hall Bridges Academy is the story of American education. Nadia Lopez . . . must be a principal, a mentor, and sometimes a mother. I hope that you re as impressed by her dedication to these kids as I ve been." Brandon Stanton, "#1 New York Times" bestselling author of "Humans of New York" The inspirational account of the creation of a pathbreaking inner-city middle school in Brooklyn, New York, by the magnetic young principal who rocketed to national fame via "Humans of New York" When thirteen-year-old Vidal Chastanet told photographer Brandon Stanton that his principal, Ms. Lopez, was the person who most influenced his life, it was the pebble that started a whirlwind for Nadia Lopez and her small, new public school in one of Brooklyn s most wretched communities. The posting on Stanton s wildly popular site Humans of New York (HONY) went mega-viral. Lopez not long before on the verge of quitting found herself in the national spotlight and headed for a meeting with Obama, as well as the beneficiary of a million-dollar IndieGoGo campaign for the school. Here is her first-person account of what it took to get to that moment. Mott Hall Bridges Academy isn t just a hallway inside a typically underserved public school in one of New York City s most underprivileged communities it is a school that glows with energy and excitement. Lopez tells the kids every day that they re extraordinary and that she loves them. When trouble stirs, she asks: Would I have been proud to see what happened in that classroom? No? Then why did it happen? She tells her teachers: Don t tell me our scholars can t learn; because if you can t teach them, then I ll come teach your class for a couple of weeks. Everything was an uphill battle to get the school launched, to recruit faculty "and" students, to solve a million new problems every day, from violent crime to vanishing supplies, but Lopez illustrates how leadership often means just picking the right people to support you. In middle school, one year lost with an unengaged teacher is a year that can send a kid down a terrible path. And then, of course, there is the educational system itself, how teaching to the test is an enormous problem, particularly in schools with kids who are already disadvantaged and underprepared. "The Bridge to Brilliance" is a book filled with common sense and caring that will carry her message to classrooms far from Brooklyn. As she says, modestly, There are hundreds of Ms. Lopezes around this country doing good work for kids. This honors all of them. "
