The unusual, the unsung and unknown side of New York City
This book invites you to travel in a way that tourists rarely do, whether you’re a lifelong New Yorker looking for an excuse to leave your apartment or a first time visitor searching for a companion that won’t drag you around like a sightseer.
America’s greatest metropolis deserves a book of secrets – one that compiles its curious idiosyncracies and digs through its past & present to bring you inspiration and adventure in the least expected places.
Guidebooks are often organized by borough, or by the times of day, or categorized by activities that tourists are expected to do. These chapters are created around a person’s mood and the cards that life has dealt us on any given day. Because when you wake up in New York City, a new adventure awaits…
