Review

Praise for "Inside the Apple" "A smart and entertaining window on the city of the past." --The New York Times

"I was born in New York and lived there for years, but I had no idea what I was missing until I picked up "Inside the Apple". It's jammed with fascinating pieces of history and great nuggets of trivia. I can't wait to walk Manhattan again with this book in hand." -- Noah D. Oppenheim, coauthor of the bestselling "The Intellectual Devotional"(TM) series

"As a longtime New Yorker, I never tire of walking the streets and uncovering something new about the world's most fascinating city, where every street has a story to tell. "Inside the Apple" is a gem of a book, filled with nuggets about New York's extraordinary past, from the sidewalks up. Whether you are a tourist exploring for the very first time or a seasoned walker in the city, this book is a must." - -- Kenneth C. Davis, author of the bestsellers "America's Hidden History" and" Don't Know Much About "(R)" History"



"New York City's history is fantastically deep and rich. Despite the best efforts of the city's developers and political powers to obliterate it all, there's still much of it left to see and many stories to tell--if you have the right guides. You'll find none better than James and Michelle Nevius in this ingeniously conceived, thoroughly informed, and companionably written time machine of a book."
--John Strausbaugh, author of "The Village: 400 Years of Beats and Bohemians, Radicals and Rogues, a History of Greenwich Village "

"Reading "Footprints in New York" is like wandering through the city's history with smart friends. The pages are full of compelling details that mesh together in surprising ways, and throughout shines true affection: you sense that Michelle and James Nevius are rightly proud of New York for being America's most fascinating place."
--TM Rives, author of "Secret New York: An Unusual Guide""I truly love "Footprints in New York." I couldn't stop reading, even when I was reading about things I already knew. James and Michelle Nevius made me feel like I was with them on a personal tour."
--Mitch Broder, author of "Discovering Vintage New York: A Guide to the City's Timeless Shops, Bars, Delis & More""With lightly carried erudition and the skills born of guiding many visitors--as well as curious natives--James and Michelle Nevius will take you by the hand and tell you amazing true tales. They are the Marco Polos of New York City."

About the Author

Authors of Inside the Apple, James and Michelle Nevius have been putting their historical knowledge to work leading guided walking tours of New York City since 2000. Every tour is a mix of architecture, history, art, and culture, with a focus on uncovering hidden history and intriguing facts and stories not readily apparent to the casual visitor. Tours are rigorously researched and constantly evolving.Michelle and James's tour business has drawn a loyal following. Their guided talks have been a feature of many academic programs, including the Columbia School of Journalism; the New York School of Law; Siena College in Albany; and Texas A&M's Mays School of Business. Regular clients include Brown Brothers Harriman, Fordham University alumni, the Hofstra University Museum of Art, HF Holidays (one of the UK's top travel agencies), Beyond Times Square (a New York-based travel company), the Consular Women's Club (the wives of U.N. diplomats), Broadway Across America (a national theater tourism agency), along with hundreds of couples, families, corporate groups, and historically minded sightseers in New York.Michelle holds a Bachelor's and two Masters Degrees in Ancient History, Art History, and Archaeology from Columbia University and has taught art history to undergraduates at Columbia and Hunter College, CUNY.Michelle and James have each been quoted as New York City experts in the New York Times, Time Out New York, amNY, the Chicago Tribune, the Australian, and the Associated Press. They have appeared on the Brian Lehrer Show, Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio, WCBS AM, WFUV's award-winning show Cityscape, and on C-SPAN2's Book TV program. In 2012, James appeared as a New York City expert on Discovery Network's new program Curious and Unusual Deaths. In the past, they have been invited to guest blog at the New York Times on the history of Manhattan and at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, the city's premiere destination for immigrant history.
