NEW YORK IS UNAPOLOGETIC./


YOU EITHER LOVE IT OR YOU HATE IT - BUT THE CITY DOESN'T CARE EITHER WAY./ IT'S TOO BUSY MOVING, SP1NNING, CHURNING, NEVER STOPPING./ THE PACE IS FRANTIC; THE SCALE IS IMMENSE./ HUMANS ARE DWARFED BY ENORMOUS SKYSCRAPERS, ETCHING THAT ICONIC SKYLINE, WHILE FAR BELOW, TRAFFIC-FILLED GRIDS BECOME A BLUR OF TAIL LIGHTS + NOISE./ PEOPLE RUSHING FROM A TO B./ T1ME IS MONEY./

DESPITE THE CONSTANT BUZZ OF BUSINESS, THE CITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HOTBED FOR CREATIVE ENERGY - A PLAYGROUND FOR ARTISTS, MUSICIANS + DESIGNERS OF ALL KINDS./ IN RECENT DECADES, THE NUCLEUS OF THAT ENERGY HAS SHIFTED FROM MANHATTAN, SEEPING OUT INTO THE CITY'S PREVIOUSLY LESSER-KNOWN BOROUGHS + DISTRICTS./

F1FTY'S NEW YORK GUIDE WILL TAKE YOU ALL THE WAY FROM THE OBVIOUS LANDMARKS TO THE HIDDEN GEMS, INTRODUC1NG YOU TO THE 51 PLACES YOU NEED TO KNOW.../
