One need never be lonely in Manhattan. At any time of day or night there are diversions and distractions. Alone one can move at any pace – race through a gallery, read a novel in the park, make friends at a lunch counter, spend an afternoon at the cinema, or an entire day bargain shopping!
This guide includes 30 entries divided into sections to help find the experience you want: to blend into a crowd, chat with strangers, spoil yourself, or just enjoy your own company. It’s New York after all: anything goes.
About Herb Lester Guides
Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, these just tell you how to enjoy it. They aim to show the reader what makes a place distinctive, to shed light on obscure locations as well as revisiting well-known ones with a fresh perspective.Each city is researched the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. That research is turned into a compact guide with enough suggestions to keep you entertained, with a list of shops, bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, museums and parks, each one carefully described.
