111 Places in New York That You Must Not Miss by Jo-Anne ElikannNew York, New York – a crazy quilt of evolving neighborhoods, trends, and tastes, and home to natives and newcomers of every nationality, ethnicity, and outlook. New York City’s history and grand ambitions live in every street, park, and hidden alleyway. This unusual guidebook invites the adventurous and curious to explore a wildly diverse selection of little-known places, including: a trapeze school, a giant Buddha in a former porno theater, a Coney Island sideshow, Louis Armstrong’s home, a Central Park croquet court, a Gatsby-era speakeasy, and a secret balcony where slaves worshipped 200 years ago. Play chess with the masters on a Midtown office-tower wall; have a pint at a legendary prizefighters hangout in Soho; whisper messages across a crowded train station. Unexpected and quirky, most of these destinations are so under-the-radar they’ll astound even longtime New Yorkers who thought they knew it all!

In June we returned to give Gary a copy of the book. It was held at the brand-new spot, The Lit. Bar, Alexander Avenue. Photographer Joe Conzo and I signed a lot of copies and gave a short slide show of 11 places that are in the book. We had a really nice chat with anchors Andrea Grymes and Cindy Hsu, who obviously read the book in advance and new what to ask. Andrea formerly worked in The Bronx, so she was an expert. Joe is a lifelong Bronxite, and talks about growing up in the shadow of famous parents, and navigating the world of The Bronx.
They say New York is one of the most expensive cities in the world. I have lived near the City for a year and spent almost every weekends there. Sometimes with more money, other times with less money. I know how feels to travel on low-budget to expensive destinations. I think there is no need to introduce Time Square. Everybody knows it — first timers love it, locals avoid it. Stand in the middle, look around, be amazed by the huge screens and try to believe in your eyes!
