Beyond New York’s Tourist Traps
New York City is the epicenter of glamour. But the famous city is home to more than just the Empire State Building. Secret New York: An Unusual Guide by T.M. Rives unveils the paths quite literally less traveled in New York City. Witness the last standing gaslight lamppost, or scout out the Hare Krishna Tree, the birthplace of the Hare Krishna movement. The metropolis makes a poor spot for a telescope, but at the Rutherford Observatory you’ll find the city’s best astronomical vantages, and you’ll come to believe that stars really do exist over Manhattan. Local or visiting, this guide offers endless opportunities to step off the sidewalk and into the city’s hidden places. Secret New York: An Unusual Guide by T.M. Rives is available online and in stores for $20.
