Footprints in New York: Tracing the Lives of Four Centuries of New Yorkers, is finally out!
In Footprints in New York (Lyons Press), the follow-up to our critically acclaimed history of the city, Inside the Apple: A Streetwise History of New York City, we explore the stories of notable citizens of the Big Apple—including Dutch governor Peter Stuyvesant, religious dissenter Anne Hutchinson, writers Edgar Allan Poe and Edith Wharton, urban advocate Jane Jacobs, and musical legend Bob Dylan—and use them to guide the reader through four centuries of the city’s history. One part history and one part personal narrative, the book creates a different way of looking at the city’s past. We are really proud of the finished product and we hope that—just like on our walking tours—you’ll discover things about the city in these pages that you never knew. Some of our walking tour clients even make cameo appearances!
If you are in New York City, the book is already on store shelves at Barnes & Noble, the Strand, and other independent stores ahead of its official April 15 release date.
If you don’t live in NYC or want to order online, visit our “Buy the Book” page on our Footprints website, which not only has links to Amazon.com, but also to numerous other online retailers both in the USA and abroad. If you want to support your local bookstore, click the “Indie Bound” logo. There, you can enter your zip code and find the independent bookstore nearest to you that has the book in stock or will order it for you.
