Angelika Taschen knows New York
. She’s been behind the velvet ropes, explored the secret, unmarked restaurants
and beloved neighborhood delis
, scoured Soho, Nolita and Tribeca’s 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 don’t 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.
