Silent Cities New York: Hidden Histories of the Region's Cemeteries
New Yorkers have always been pressed for space in life and in death. Central Park is synonymous with New York City. But without Green-Wood Cemetery, located in South Brooklyn, Central Park would have never existed. Founded in 1838, Green-Wood became the city's most popular tourist attraction. The cemetery was so popular that urban planners challenged architects to come up with plans for a separate green-space for Manhattan. Hence, both Central Park, founded in 1857, and Brooklyn's Prospect Park, in 1867, were born. Green-Wood presented not only a place to bury the dead but a meditative haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Other cemeteries followed in the park style, including Sleepy Hollow and Woodlawn. New York's changing cultural landscape made Ferncliff Cemetery one of the most coveted places to spend eternity, with the rising popularity of Westchester County and suburban living. New Yorkers even secured a place for the four-legged members of the family with Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, now the largest and oldest pet cemetery in the United States. From the movers and shakers of New York society, to corrupt political bosses and mafiosi, Jazz legends, and a Brooklyn native son who returned to Green-Wood as one of the most famous artists of the 20th century, the stories of the permanent residents of these cemeteries are just as diverse and vibrant as the city itself. To travel through the cemeteries of New York is to travel through the hidden history of what some consider to be the greatest city in the world.

While these regions continue to gain popularity with city-dwellers, trying to make a break for it has always been a complicated DIY process.

All the Agents and Saints: Dispatches from the U.S. Borderlands
After a decade of chasing stories around the globe, intrepid travel writer Stephanie Elizondo Griest followed the magnetic pull home-only to discover that her native South Texas had been radically transformed in her absence. Ravaged by drug wars and barricaded by an eighteen-foot steel wall, her ancestral land had become the nation's foremost crossing ground for undocumented workers, many of whom perished along the way. The frequency of these tragedies seemed like a terrible coincidence until Elizondo Griest moved to the New York-Canada borderlands. Once she began to meet Mohawks from the Akwesasne Nation, she recognized striking parallels to life on the southern border. Having lost their land through devious treaties, their mother tongues at English-only schools, and their traditional occupations through capitalist ventures, Tejanos and Mohawks alike struggle under the legacy of colonialism. Toxic industries surround their neighborhoods, while the U.S. Border Patrol militarizes them. Combating these forces are legions of artists and activists devoted to preserving their indigenous cultures. Complex belief systems, meanwhile, conjure miracles. In All the Agents and Saints, Elizondo Griest weaves seven years of stories into a meditation on the existential impact of international borderlines by illuminating the spaces in between and the people who live there. This edition features a new preface by the author.

Which city is better: L.A. or New York? Inspired by this oft-posed question, the bi-coastal Sammy Perlmutter decided to pin his two hometowns side by side and answer this question once and for all. It turns out, the cities' similarities are what make it impossible to choose. The New Yorker's Guide to LA, The Angeleno's Guide to NYC - colourful and comprehensive - is as much a love letter to two cities as it is a practical travel guide. By highlighting the parallels between the two cities, it will help readers get up to speed in New York City settle into the groove of Los Angeles. Featuring a mirrored design, this book shows which neighbourhoods correspond in each city, which pizza places and taco stands can't be missed and how to seamlessly switch from navigating the MTA to driving on the 405. Covering everything you need to know to tackle either or both cities - from art, culture, shopping, eating, day trips and first date spots to neighbourhood history lessons and area code reputations - it highlights the similarities while breaking down the nuanced differences in each city. Though it's tongue-in-cheek and fun to read, the book will be illustrated with maps, diagrams and portraits and will be a practical, must-have guide for tourist and native alike.

How can a broken artifact represent a city? The Liberty Bell cracked on the very first attempt to make it sound, and had to be recast twice and remolded with additional copper to improve its alloy. Today, it hangs in Independence Hall, where it remains a symbol of American freedom as well as an unbeatable icon of Philadelphia craft. This collection of essays from writers and curators connects Philadelphia's heritage to its current stature as a national craft capital. Explore one of America's most creative cities in this trailblazer for city-based studies of contemporary craft, and discover how small workshops for fabric, wool, ceramics, and textile starting as early as 1751 grew into the still expanding craft world that we have today. With a reputation for rich history and creativity, Philadelphia can now be explored simultaneously through the view of both in this perfect tour for craft and history enthusiasts alike.

A Book Lover's Guide to New York
A Book Lover s Guide to New York is a love letter to everything literary in New York City. It is a book all about books. The book is an object in itself, designed as the ultimate little tome any book collector would love to acquire, layered with witty Pierre Le-Tan drawings, as well as photographs of some of the most precious bookish locations. Rediscover New York in the most fashionably literate way: whether you are in need of an exceptionally rare edition of your favorite novel (perhaps to be found in the dark and musty backroom of The Center for Fiction), or the most tranquil place to devour a short story on a wintry day (an empty underground food court in a Midtown skyscraper), or if you are looking to follow in the footsteps of a beloved author or novella character (like Capote s Grady and Clyde in Central Park Zoo), this will be your ultimate companion. Part guide, part sophisticated scrapbook and part desirable object, A Book Lover s Guide to New York is an absolute must for any book-savvy person the young bookworm or old scholar, the visiting tourist or homegrown New Yorker, the aspiring writer or doting parent.

Brooklyn: The Once and Future City
An unprecedented history of Brooklyn, told through its places, buildings, and the people who made them, from the early seventeenth century to today America's most storied urban underdog, Brooklyn has become an internationally recognized brand in recent decades-celebrated and scorned as one of the hippest destinations in the world. In Brooklyn: The Once and Future City, Thomas J. Campanella unearths long-lost threads of the urban past, telling the rich history of the rise, fall, and reinvention of one of the world's most resurgent cities. Spanning centuries and neighborhoods, Brooklyn-born Campanella recounts the creation of places familiar and long forgotten, both built and never realized, bringing to life the individuals whose dreams, visions, rackets, and schemes forged the city we know today. He takes us through Brooklyn's history as homeland of the Leni Lenape and its transformation by Dutch colonists into a dense slaveholding region. We learn about English emigre Deborah Moody, whose town of Gravesend was the first founded by a woman in America. We see how wanderlusting Yale dropout Frederick Law Olmsted used Prospect Park to anchor an open space system that was to reach back to Manhattan. And we witness Brooklyn's emergence as a playland of racetracks and amusement parks celebrated around the world. Campanella also describes Brooklyn's outsized failures, from Samuel Friede's bid to erect the world's tallest building to the long struggle to make Jamaica Bay the world's largest deepwater seaport, and the star-crossed urban renewal, public housing, and highway projects that battered the borough in the postwar era. Campanella reveals how this immigrant Promised Land drew millions, fell victim to its own social anxieties, and yet proved resilient enough to reawaken as a multicultural powerhouse and global symbol of urban vitality.
