Meet me at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the Mid-Manhattan branch of the New York Public Library. I’m giving a FREE lecture on tranquil, peaceful places in NYC — secret gardens, picture postcard vistas, quiet sanctuaries in busy places, hiking trails you can get to by subway, which days of the week and times of the day to visit popular museums and avoid the crowds, and more. It’s easy to find peaceful places in NYC — if you know where to look, and I did. I found more than 100 of them researching and writing my NYC guidebook, Peaceful Places in NYC. After the crowds and the sensory overload of Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks and concert, the idea of finding serenity and tranquility in NYC is a good one.
Join me at the Mid-Manhattan Branch, at 40th Street and Fifth Avenue, at 6:30 p.m. I’ll share hidden sanctuaries in our favorite NYC parks, hiking trails, peaceful cafes, wonderful little museums that are rarely crowded, and more. Best of all, most of these quiet, tranquil peaceful places and sanctuaries are free and accessible by NYC subways and busses. I’ll also have some copies of the book with me, and happy to autograph.
6:30 p.m.,Wednesday, July 6th, Mid-Manhattan Library, 40th St. and Fifth Ave., 6th floor. And it will be a great opportunity to meet those of you who follow NYC on the Cheap.
