Marvelous Manhattan : Stories of the Restaurants, Bars, and Shops That Make This City Special
by Reggie Nadelson




Overview -
In this diverse and richly informative collection, author (and lifelong New Yorker) Reggie Nadelson introduces readers to 40 New York institutions that have defined cool for decades, from time-honored restaurants to unsung dives. Entries span the length of Manhattan, from the beloved appetizing shop Russ & Daughters and dim sum parlor Jing Fong downtown to the Three Lives bookstore and Julius' bar in the West Village, German food shop Schaller & Weber on the Upper East Side to the Minton's Playhouse jazz club in Harlem.

The essays weave together Reggie's own experiences of these beloved shops--from her childhood in the West Village to her present-day Soho haunts--and the histories of these storied institutions and their owners. The book is at once dripping in nostalgia and celebratory of the modern-day incarnations of these locations, many of them family-run, that continue to mean so much to the residents of this city.
