111 Places in New York

That You Must Not Miss

GUIDE

New York, New York – a crazy quilt of evolving neighborhoods, trends, and tastes, and home to natives and newcomers of every nationality, ethnicity, and outlook. New York City’s history and grand ambitions live in every street, park, and hidden alleyway. This unusual guidebook invites the adventurous and curious to explore a wildly diverse selection of little-known places, including: a trapeze school, a giant Buddha in a former porno theater, a Coney Island sideshow, Louis Armstrong’s home, a Central Park croquet court, a Gatsby-era speakeasy, and a secret balcony where slaves worshipped 200 years ago. Play chess with the masters on a Midtown office-tower wall; have a pint at a legendary prizefighter's hangout in Soho; whisper messages across a crowded train station.

Jo-Anne Elikann

Jo-Anne Elikann was born in Brooklyn, grew up in Queens, and lives in Manhattan. The day her parents let her ride the subway she fell hopelessly in love with the city, and has feasted on its smorgasbord of extraordinary experiences over since. A freelance writer, artist, and photographer whose proudest achievement has been raising six kids in a NYC apartment, her career includes stints as an art/antiques cataloguer, director of a children's art center, partner in a graphics firm, and healthcare administrator. She's a die-hard New Yorker and lifelong explorer of its nooks, crannies, and endless power to amaze.
