About the Author

Ed Glazar has been riding bikes for most of his life—from the ditches and BMX tracks of east Texas to the streets of New York City. Glazar’s bag of street cred includes several years of experience as a bike courier and a dispatcher, and most recently as a New York City bike tour guide. He has been taking pictures for more than ten years.

Marci Blackman has cycled through Europe, across the United States from San Francisco to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and through the high octane, traffic-snarled streets of New York City. Blackman writes and lives in Queens and works as a bicycle tour guide for Central Park Bike Tours.

Michael Green is the founder of BikeBlogNYC.com, one of the key resources for urban cycling in New York and around the world. Michael has been quoted in the New York Times and has been interviewed by New York Magazine, Time Out New York, The Village Voice, CBS, and several radio programs elsewhere.

Whether you are a cyclist or not, this book is fascinating. The authors display a real database of knowledge of the history of the neighborhoods of New York City and what can be found there. I enjoyed reading it. Yes, the maps aren't the greatest, and the print is small but the content is terrific. Who knew there was a neighborhood in Queens called Blissville, that there was a vending machine with tire patches and glue in Brooklyn, or that Greenpoint was a farming area with wars between the Indians and the Dutch?

Way too much information on the handful of rides the book picks out, little to no information about any other places to bike, pictures that look like they were taken on a first generation iPhone, and pathetic useless maps. There are many other books on the same topic that are far superior; avoid this thing like the plague.

* The information is very useful, and the routes are very interesting
* The maps are too COOL, but because of that you cannot even read what they write on them. They just show the big picture of each route. Not very useful.
* A lot of information. It is nice that if you want to skip details, you just have to read what is in bold letters.
* I recommend to buy a NYC guide besides of this one, so you can check the maps while you are biking, or check restaurants for example.

It lacks of maps; if you want to know some routes better go to any google or NYC bike maps.
