What do famous people love
to do during their free time in the Big Apple?

Most New Yorkers, even famous ones, have cherished rituals and favorite places
that connect them to their city in unique ways. They have their beloved
restaurants, museums, parks, galleries, landmarks, haunts, and hideaways.
It may be watching tango dancers on Saturday nights in Central Park. Or riding
a bike over the Brooklyn Bridge for a slice of Grimaldi's pepperoni pizza and a
view of the Manhattan skyline from across the East River. Perhaps it entails
choosing from the many varieties of bread at Rock Hill Bake House in
the Union Square Greenmarket or simply walking across 46th Street and ending up
at Joe Allen, the great Broadway hangout.

So imagine a book in which Matthew Broderick shares his favorite bike ride. Nora Ephron describes where she buys discounted roses in every imaginable color. Edward Norton reveals his favorite restaurant. Daniel Boulud describes his favorite pizza joint and where he buys cheese. My City, My New York lets you experience the city as some of your favorite New Yorkers do and get a peek into parts of the town
that they hold dear.

In a refreshing step beyond the usual travel guides and tourist listings,My City, My New York quotes VIPs and gives readers something truly unique: a chance to experience the city the way some of its most notable residents do. The activities and
establishments included are diverse, often eclectic, and, most-importantly,
nonexclusive--you don't need to
be a celebrity to enjoy them.

While offering new and creative possibilities for exploration, My City, My New York is also a love
letter to the Big Apple and will touch even the most jaded New Yorkers.

Celebrities include:

- Matthew Broderick

- Woody Allen

- Tina Fey

- Bette Midler

- Joan Rivers

- Donald Trump

- Chris Noth

- Mayor Michael Bloomberg

- Alex Rodriguez

- And many more...
