This book invites you to travel in a way that tourists rarely do, whether you’re a lifelong New Yorker looking for an excuse to leave your apartment or a first time visitor searching for a companion that won’t drag you around like a sightseer. Following her first best-selling book Don’t be a Tourist in Paris
, Vanessa Grall has taken on New York, teaming up with local New York writers and explorers Luke J Spencer, Francky Knapp and Scott Walker to create the ultimate compendium of unique ideas and off-beat addresses.
This book can wake up your inner explorer; tap into your curiosity and help you to discover all five boroughs like a roaming detective; a seeker of stories and collector of local secrets. Over the past decade, Grall’s distinct style and curation has already helped inspire and guide over a million monthly readers on Messy Nessy Chic, the cult online magazine that became a bona fide lifeline for the internet’s most curious minds. Guidebooks are often organised by borough, or by the times of day, or categorised by activities that tourists are expected to do. But as you’ll start to realise, Messy Nessy Chic doesn’t travel by the rules. These chapters are created around a person’s mood and the cards that life has dealt us on any given day. Because when you wake up in New York City, a new adventure awaits… Also available: Don’t be a Tourist in Paris
