Written by Author Reggie Nadelson, this book takes you on a tour of some of Nadleson’s favorite places in New York. Providing historical backgrounds on the building, families or famous persons that have visited, it’s a wonderful look at the city that never sleeps through the eyes of one of its own.

I was finally able to visit NYC a few years before Covid came along. I had hoped I’d be on a return trip by now but that’s going to have to wait. Reading through this book, I was able to learn so much about these places and now have added at least 10 new places I’ll need to visit when I’m finally able to return. My husband, originally from New York, had only heard of a handful of these places and learned quite a bit reading over my shoulder, along with salivating at all the descriptions of food from the restaurants listed!

A favorite quote from the book that reinforces my growing love for this city I’ve barely had time to explore:

Very few cities cling to their myths or their history the way New York does; even as it hurries to tear things down, to build up bigger, higher, richer, there is always that rueful melancholy for the past.

This book was such a pleasure to read!

Thank you to #NetGalley for providing this book. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy and all views expressed are only my honest opinion.
