Description

New York Offbeat Walks is a pocket-size guide containing 13 walks covering Manhattan. It is not a guide to the mainstream, but the quirkier side of Manhattan, for jaded residents who want to rediscover their city and explore areas they often overlook. Each walk will cover lesser-known architectural, historical, and cultural highlights and everything in between: from movie locations to hidden rivers; where Warhol and the Beats hung out to where Billie Holliday lived, and Mafia hits carried out. It explores the relics of Dutch and British rule, where Sid killed Nancy and Bowie made his home. You will be led to community gardens, learn why parks got their name, and the curious stories behind obscure statutes. Accompanied by full-color photographs and maps, the walks will take readers in the footsteps of celebrities, pioneering women, poets, rock stars, murders, anarchists, and the people who helped shape this great city.
