    It is universally acknowledged that NYC has the most diverse art

    It is universally acknowledged that NYC has the most diverse art scene in the world. Sometimes it is too diverse, so those of us who only start to learn and appreciate art can use a little bit of guidance. If you are about to embark on the art exploring journey in New York, this book is definitely for you.
    Wondering what this huge mural on Bowery and Houston is all about? Want to know what the best galleries in Chelsea are? Interested in curious pieces of art history that compound the NYC art scene? You can find the answers in this little book. 
    Beside the great illustrations, the best part of this guide is the Listings section that has all you need to know about THE best art locations in the city and around it.
    It also covers life stories of the greatest artists who lived in worked in New York--Warhol, Rothko, Pollack, et al. And they were not boring stories--they are full of anecdotes, unexpected twists, and famous quotes by famous artists. Trust me, after reading this book, you will feel like the ultimate NYC art insider.
    Highly recommended.
