Herb Lester Associates research, write, print and distribute maps and guides to the world's great cities. We seek out the well-used and much-loved, and enjoy the extraordinary as well as the everyday. Old bookshops and new coffee shops, park benches and dive bars, hat shops and haberdashers: this is the world according to Herb Lester.
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.
