Book Description

3 April 2014

New York is the city that never sleeps, but many visitors to the Big Apple want to enjoy its quiet side - to discover places off the beaten track, to explore enticing small museums or enjoy peaceful gardens. Busy New Yorkers often look for places to relax and recuperate - to find somewhere to have coffee and cake or a restful spot to unwind, away from the hustle and bustle.

Covering all five boroughs, this is a guide to over 120 quiet places to meet, drink, dine, sleep, read or wander. There are evocative photographs and a short description for each location, including travel, access and contact details. Quiet New York reveals the hidden, tranquil places in one of the world's liveliest cities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Treasure! 7 April 2014
By Mark Osborne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful guide book to NY's best places to escape from it all! Great for tourists but especially us frazzled NYers who can't afford to actually get away from the city for whatever reason.

1.0 out of 5 stars restaurant section 27 April 2014
By MortJas4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I can't comment on the other places covered in this book, but flipping through
the restaurant section was quite enough for me. McSorley's Old Ale House?
Fanelli's? The Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station? Anyone who knows NYC
would be easily forgiven for thinking this section a parody. In fact . . . is it?
