Editorial Reviews

Review

"....a perfect gift for any New York lover you know, but you’ll want to a copy for yourself, too. The beautiful new book . . . will work as a practical guidebook to places in the city you’ve always wanted to visit, and as a mini-coffee table book for those who aren’t lucky enough to live near New York City." ~Connecticut Post

"Whether you’re reliving the fascinating journey of your favorite neighborhood haunt or learning about an unexpected product (say, rolling ladders) manufactured right here in the city, the 240-page hardcover book, written by show host Jamie McDonald, is a delightfully informative read." ~Purewow.com

"...this coffee-table tome also serves as a hardcover guidebook to New York's precious, fading family businesses..." ~Time Out New York

This book is a lot of fun whether you grew up in NY or are just visiting. Covering the hidden gems around NYC, the book has the same likable voice as the Emmy-winning show it is based on. Enjoy and visit some of these great shops and restaurants.

Thouroughly enjoyed this book. Have given one as a gift and I will probably gift it to others. Great when you have guests visiting New York. I plan to visit some of the spots that will be a first for us.
