The book Landing Lights Park was reviewed in an article for Hyperallergic.

Allison Meier writes in the article:

“In Landing Lights Park, those bombastic architectural touches — such as stone lions and colorful ornate fences — are interrupted by the planes. Yet despite the incredible noise, and blasts of air, these planes bring to the neighborhood, Rothenberg’s photographs have a surprising stillness. Whether in the soaring aircrafts, or the expressions of the people onboard, his compositions find quiet moments in this daily contrast between cacophonous flight and the lives below.”

Rothenberg focuses on the neighborhood that lies beneath the whining roar and shadows of inbound jetliners landing at New York’s LaGuardia Airport in Queens. Rothenberg’s photographs explore this extraordinary intrusion within a landscape of the ordinary.

‘Landing Lights Park’ offers  a sequence of disorienting photographic collisions. Neighborhood details and intruding airplanes are interspersed with portraits of passengers in midair as they gaze out their windows moments before landing, taken from the ground with a telephoto lens. Includes short essays by Gideon Jacobs.
