The real New York
As a librarian, I am frequently asked for recommendations for travel books. Without any question I will suggest 'Off the Beaten Subway Track.' Whereas other travel books focus on the common and mundane, Ms. Reisman highlights unknown treasures that are easily accessible by public transporation. I am a native New Yorker and am embarasssed to say that I was unaware of many of these sights. With this book as my guide, I will set about exploring my city. Let me add that most travelogues are written ina dry style. THat is certainly not the case here. With wit and warmth, Ms. Reisman conveys a love of NYC and its hidden treasures.
