Forgotten New York: Views of a Lost Metropolis (Paperback)

    Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


    Forgotten New York is your passport to more than 300 years of history, architecture, and memories hidden in plain sight.

    Houses dating to the first Dutch settlers on Staten Island; yellow brick roads in Brooklyn; clocks embedded in the sidewalk in Manhattan; bishop's crook lampposts in Queens; and a white elephant in the Bronx--this is New York and this is your guide to seeing it all. Forgotten New York covers all five boroughs with easy-to-use maps and suggested routes to hundreds of out-of-the way places, antiquated monuments, streets to nowhere, and buildings from a time lost.

    Forgotten New York features:

    • Quiet Places
    • Truly Forgotten
    • History Happened Here
    • What Is This Thing?
    • Forgotten People
    • And so much more
