This book lets you experience New York as your favorite famous New Yorkers do and get a rare peek into parts of New York they hold especially dear. Much more than a guidebook, My City, My New York is a love letter to the greatest city on earth. But it’s also a guidebook to the secret places you’ll want to experience on your own. And you never know what you may discover.
