New York City's most iconic felines.

They inhabit New York City's most legendary and coziest spots-the Algonquin Hotel, a whiskey distillery, Bleecker Street Records, a pilates studio, bookstores, bike shops, and in bodegas around the five boroughs. True New Yorkers-masters of people watching-they perch on wine crates, piles of books, and a classic hotel desktop, taking in all the activity around them. Shop Cats of New York introduces forty of New York's favorite felines as popular cat blogger Tamar Arslanian and Instagram pet photographer Andrew Marttila capture these deeply loved and well-cared-for animals in their city habitats and reveal how they have come to reign over their urban kingdoms.
