Summary

New York, New York – a crazy quilt of evolving neighborhoods, trends, and tastes, and home to natives and newcomers of every nationality, ethnicity, and outlook. New York City's history and grand ambitions live in every street, park, and hidden alleyway. This unusual guidebook invites the adventurous and curious to explore a wildly diverse selection of little-known places, including: a trapeze school, a giant Buddha in a former porno theater, a Coney Island sideshow, Louis Armstrong's home, a Central Park croquet court, a Gatsby-era speakeasy, and a secret balcony where slaves worshipped 200 years ago. Play chess with the masters on a Midtown office-tower wall; have a pint at a legendary prizefighter's hangout in Soho; whisper messages across a crowded train station. Unexpected and quirky, most of these destinations are so under-the-radar they'll astound even longtime New Yorkers who thought they knew it all!New York, New York … Die Stadt, die niemals schläft, ist nicht nur eine Welt für sich, sondern die ganze Welt in sich - ein Mix aus sich ständig wandelnden Vierteln und Heimat Alteingesessener wie Newcomern jeglicher Nationalität und Mentalität. Dieses Buch lädt Neugierige ein, unbekannte Orte zu erkunden, so etwa einen gigantischen Buddha in einem Sexkino, Spelunken der Gatsby-Ära, das Haus von Louis Armstrong, chinesische Vögel im Freien, Geheimtipps hungriger Hipster, den unwahrscheinlichsten Ort für Flüsterbotschaften oder einen Balkon, auf dem vor 200 Jahren Sklaven beteten. Dermaßen überraschend und schräg sind die Ziele unserer Reise durch die Stadt, dass selbst New Yorker staunen, die dachten, sie kennen hier alles!
