New York Offbeat Walks is a pocket-size guide containing 12 walks covering Manhattan. It is not a guide to the mainstream, but the quirkier side of Manhattan, for jaded residents who want to rediscover their city and explore areas they often overlook.
This is NOT your typical guide—this book will show you the quirkier side of Manhattan. See where the slave market was in Colonial Manhattan, and learn who streets were named after. Visit the site of Studio 54, CBGBs, William S. Burroughs’ Bunker, and John Lennon’s Nutopia. Walk through streets you’ll recognize from The Godfather, When Harry Met Sally, The Devil Wears Prada, and other famous movies. Experience everything from tiny community gardens, Holly Golightly’s brownstone masonic symbols to skyscrapers beloved by billionaires . . .
Each walk covers lesser-known architectural, historical, and cultural highlights.
