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, learn who the streets were named after, visit the site of Studio 54, CGBGs, William S. Burroughs’ Bunker, and John Lennon’s Nutopia, see the locations you’ll recognize from The Godfather (1972), When Harry Met Sally (1989), The Devil Wears Prada (2006), and places where other famous movies were filmed, visit everything from tiny community gardens to skyscrapers beloved by billionaires . . .

Each walk covers lesser-known architectural, historical, and cultural highlights.
