“Quite simply, I was in love with New York. I do not mean ‘love’ in any colloquial way, I mean that I was in love with the city, the way you love the first person who ever touches you and you never love anyone quite that way again.” – Joan Didion
The Lilliputian hotel room, once slept in by sailors, now perfect for the solo traveler; the cinema that restores Golden Age glamor to the movie-going experience; the modern pharmacist who will cure your cold (or hangover) with a tonic; the spot to sip a Manhattan while gazing at pictures by Warhol and Basquiat; the market that offers a true slice of the Lower East Side; the high end burger and the hidden one; the pizza place that created a neighbourhood; the surf town a subway away.
Soul of New York is written by Tarajia Morrell, journalist and native New Yorker, and produced by Fany Péchiodat, founder of My Little Paris, the influential newsletter-cum-lifestyle brand.
The “Soul of” collection is a new approach to the art of traveling that’s all about vagabonding around town, chance encounters, and unforgettable experiences. Guides for those who want to unlock the hidden doors of a city, feel out its heartbeat, plumb every last nook and cranny to uncover its soul.
Created by Fany Péchiodat in collaboration with the publisher Thomas Jonglez, the collection will continue to expand with new cities: Rome, Barcelona, Venice, Kyoto …
Every guide in the collection includes:
– the 30 best experiences a city has to offer
– interviews with those who give the city its spirit
– original illustrations that capture the city’s soul
