It's so wonderful to learn about places I'd never been to -- that can give you a sense of spirituality in the midst of so much chaos. I love New York City, but sometimes it can really get to me -- and I need to know where I can go to de-stress and just be quiet. I'm so grateful to the authors for writing such great descriptions and searching out these beautiful locations. I'm going to visit all of them! Thank you! Buy this book for New Yorkers and for friends who visit the city.
