My City, My New York: Famous New Yorkers Share Their Favorite Places

Edited by Jeryl Brunner. Globe Pequot, $12.95 trade paper (240p) ISBN 9780762771394
In focused sections ranging from parks to nightlife, 300 famous New Yorkers–including actors, athletes, authors, musicians, and politicians–relay their favorite thing about New York City. Salman Rushdie and Gayle King are both fond of Shake Shack's caramel milkshakes, Woody Allen reveals where he performs with his jazz band every Monday night, several folks mention the excellent Hudson River bike path, and Sam Champion of Good Morning America even gives a tour of his favorite spots along that route. In the shopping chapter, costume designer William Ivey Long lists some of the Antiques Garage finds that have inspired his work. In the final chapter, stars reveal their favorite landmarks, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Frick Collection, Yankee Stadium, and Grand Central Station. With addresses and contact listings for locations provided (when applicable), this book is an excellent resource for tourists, while even lifelong New Yorkers will find some new places to explore.
