A librarian's point of view,
This review is from: Off the Beaten (Subway) Track: New York City's Best Unusual Attractions (Paperback)
As a librarian, I am frequently asked for recommendations for travel books. Without any question I will suggest "Off the Beaten Subway Track." Whereas other travel books focus on the common and mundane, Ms. Reisman highlights unknown treasures that are easily accessible by public transportation. I am a native New Yorker and am embarassed to say that I was unaware of many of these sights. With this book as my guide, I will set about exploring my city.
Let me add that most travelogues are written in a dry style. That is certainly not the case here. With wit and warmth, Ms. Reisman conveys a love of NYC and its hidden treasures.
