New York might include Broadway, Times Square, and even the Empire State Building, but the true lifeblood of the city dwells within its long-notorious, trendsetting epicenters. Places like Lou di Palo's in Little Italy, where patrons entangle in an interesting discussion, imbibing in a variety of cheese along the way. Or Raoul's in Soho, where one can devour a classic steak-frites with downtown's finest. Or at Minton's Playhouse in Harlem, the birthplace of bebop. Or, even more so, Russ & Daughters—the go-to vendor for the Big Apple's freshest lox and bagels since 1914. From a local's perspective, author Reggie Nadelson celebrates her beloved city and all her iconic spots. A part guidebook, part historical account, part memoriam, Marvelous Manhattan is a captivating, timely read for those who dwell in or admire the city, with a glimpse.
