Get the most out of New York
In New York, its all about who you know. And now youre connected.
Angelika Taschen knows New York. Shes been behind the velvet ropes, explored the secret, unmarked restaurants and beloved neighborhood delis, scoured Soho, Nolita and Tribecas stylish stores, and scoped out hotels uptown and downtown, from sleek and chic to hidden charms. She provides an all-access pass to parts of New York even most locals dont know. Dictionary-style cutout tabs make it easy to flip through, and a pocket-sized map of Manhattan lists all the shops, hotels, and restaurants in the book. With this guide in hand, New York is yours for the taking.
Featuring the Maritime Hotel, a former sailors’ dorm, now Chelseas coolest hotel; Robert De Niros Greenwich Hotel, with its authentic Japanese spa; the cheap but chic Pod Hotel. Learn how to get the best table at the Waverly Inn, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carters exclusive salon for the glitterati; how to find Sohos hidden basement bar subMercer; the Shake Shack, for a terrific burger in the shade of Madison Square Park; Raos, the Spanish Harlem Italian joint run by the Sopranos’ actor who turned Madonna away; where to buy New Yorks best cheesecake; and Greenwich Letterpress, for hand-printed cards to send to envious friends who didnt make this fabulous New York trip!
