Walking Manhattan Sideways is not meant to be a travel guide, but its treasure trove of stories will spark the adventurer in all of us to explore Manhattan’s side streets. The writing in each chapter is peppered with quotes that capture the essence and charm of the unique cast of characters who run local businesses. The accompanying photos will seduce readers and underscore the beauty of often-overlooked places — from florists to tailors to hardware stores — that have unexpected, rich histories.
