Pop Culture New York City: The Ultimate Location Finder

We rated this book:


There are travel guides, and then there are in-depth travel guides. And then, there’s Pop Culture New York City, which is the end-all be-all of “let’s wander around the city and see some awesome stuff” guides.

This book has everything you can think of, from Broadway theaters and jazz clubs from the 20s and 30s to bookstores, modern-day speakeasies, and even locations for fictional comic book spots like Coffee-a-Go-Go and the Daily Bugle. With spotlights on locations from different TV shows, places where authors (and their fictional characters) lived, mob locales, specialty museums, and all the classic touristy landmarks, along with “free must-sees,” you will never run out of interesting spots to visit.

Plus the book offers trivia about many of these locales, like comedy clubs and whose careers were launched there, big moments in sports in NY, and pop-culture events organized by month, depending on when you plan to visit.

And Pop Culture New York City rewards the attentive reader with all sorts of little hidden gems on their maps that go beyond the highlighted text.

Here’s hoping other cities will get the Pop Culture New York City treatment.
