Admire an amazing apocalyptic pillar in a church, relax in secret gardens, view the New York version of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia, visit a secret subway tunnel, watch the stars through a university telescope, track down a statue of Lenin, have your skirts billow up at the very same grating as Marilyn Monroe, gaze at a roomful of dirt, find a Venetian palazzo above a former stable, spot the forbidden island that was once declared a sovereign nation by a guy in a rowboat, track down a townhouse concealing a subway tunnel, walk under the canopy of the primeval forest, read a memorial plaque to an event that happened in another dimension, fall into a trance before a piece of subway art that flickers and moves, have your bicycle blessed in church. New York offers endless opportunity to step off the program and peer into the city's fascinating past and present. "Secret New York An Unusual Guide" is an indispensible resource for those who thought they already knew everything about America's metropolis, or want to begin exploring it hidden places.
