9780061145025: Forgotten New York: Views of a Lost Metropolis

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; 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.

No matter if you are a lifelong New Yorker, recent resident, or weekend visitor, this magical book is the only guide to true New York.

About the Author:

Kevin Walsh, an urban explorer extraordinaire and creator of www.forgotten-ny.com, provides a window into a world that few even know exists. He hosts sold out Forgotten-NY Tours throughout the boroughs and is a much sought-after expert on little-known facts about New York City. He grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, watching the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge being built and presently lives in Flushing, Queens.

Review:

“This is a wonderful guide to Gotham old and new by someone who really knows his stuff. Invaluable!” (Kevin Baker, author of Strivers Row)

“Instantly my favorite guide to the city. Walsh has a phenomenal eye and an almost fanatical attention to detail.” (Luc Sante, author of Low Life)

There are no more nooks nor crannies in NYC left to find hidden gems. Kevin Walsh has found them all. (Stan Fischler, author of The Subway and The City)
