Description


A little book about the Big Apple

New York City is one of the most visited cities in the world, attracting about 65 million visitors every year. On first impression, it is loud, busy, and expensive, with New Yorkers fighting against the crowds to get to the other side of 42nd Street and yellow cabs speeding down Broadway. Many residents are squeezed into tenement buildings and skyscrapers where rents are sky-high and apartments are small, but still-there's something special about America's beloved Big Apple.

Packed with trivia, historical facts and more, The Little Book of New York tells you all you need to know about the city that never sleeps. From its iconic landmarks to the world-class museums and theaters that put NYC on the world map, this manual is a must for those who love the Big Apple, for those who are yet to visit, and for those desperate to return.

London is satisfied, Paris is resigned, but New York is always hopeful. Always it believes that something good is about to come off, and it must hurry to meet it.

Dorothy Parker

In nineteenth century New York, enough oysters were consumed to use their shells to pave Pearl Street in Manhattan and to use as lime for the Trinity Church masonry.
