Editorial Reviews

Review

“This and other Warhol trivia is gathered into four walking tours in Andy Warhol’s New York City: Four Walks, Uptown to Downtown, a slim but informative guidebook that maps the artist’s life -- shows and triumphs, antics and fallings-out -- against the backdrop of Manhattan.[Author] Kiedrowski, a true Warholphile, commissioned elegant drawings from Vito Giallo, an artist who served as Warhol’s first paid assistant. Though some of the notable buildings no longer exist -- they are marked 'RAZED' in the book -- it seems Warhol would not have minded much. 'I like old things torn down and new things put up every minute.” – T, The New York Times’s Style Magazine blog
 
“Thomas Kiedrowski, who leads tours to Warhol sites in New York, has written an excellent new guidebook to the pale one’s haunts, Andy Warhol’s New York City: Four Walks Uptown to Downtown….Kiedrowski has divided his survey of 80 Warhol sites into four walks: the Upper East Side above E. 70th St., the Upper East Side between E. 57th and E. 68th St., Midtown, and Downtown (including Greenwich Village)....A guidebook is not a biography, but this sturdy paperback is rich with details about Warhol, some surprising.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Andy Warhol's New York City is "one of ten reasons to love New York this summer." — Vogue.com

Format: Paperback
Yes, this is a small guidebook (pocket size if you have extra-large pockets), sturdy, perhaps a little pricy. But, I think it would be extremely useful for Warhol fans--both for the 4 walking tours, but also just for the history. Reading bios of Warhol can get a little confusing because he moved around a lot. The history along with the itineraries would be useful while reading about Warhol in any context. The author clearly knows and loves his subject. Especially useful is page 118 where there is a little chart listing page references to 4 factories, 5 residences, 13 galleries/museums, exhibitions, 16 film Premieres/shootings/showings, and 4 on the Velvet Underground.

I booked Thomas to give us a walking tour after buying the book. We hit highlights in NYC that I'd walked by and never realized their significance in NYC's cultural scene. Highly recommend the book and tour, if you're ever in NYC.
