Secret New York by Michelle Haimoff

Book Description

New York churns at a relentless pace. It is constantly being rebuilt, torn down, and rebuilt again to make way for the next era of commerce and culture. But it is truly the sum of its neighborhoods, all of which offer a different perspective on the history and attitude of the city, each of which is best explored on foot. "Secret New York" delves below the surface of this vibrant city into the areas that shape New York, with walking tours that consider both the prominent buildings of the skyline and the hidden gems within the grid. Navigating a city on foot is the most tangible way to discover its secrets, and as a pedestrian city, New York lends itself to exploration more than most. As one of the first major cities of the United States, New York offers a glimpse of the country's early history, and as its most international city, New York combines the best of the world's art, food, and way of life. This book offers a great introduction to New York and its outer boroughs, as well as a deeper look at the areas that fall below the radar of traditional guidebooks. Full-color photographs capture the treasures tucked behind every corner, while clear, easy-to-follow route maps highlight places of special interest. For travellers who want to gain familiarity with the city's more peculiar hidden life, this book offers a rare perspective of a remarkable place.
