On Thursday, April 21 at 6:30pm, we'll be at the Mid-Manhattan Library (455 Fifth Avenue, across the street from the main research branch) talking about Footprints in New York.
We hope you can join us! Our illustrated lecture will look at some of our favorite stories from the book and highlight some of New York's most interesting characters, from Alexander Hamilton to Jane Jacobs to Edgar Allan Poe.
Copies of both Footprints in New York and Inside the Apple will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

...and speaking of Edgar Allan Poe, since today is April Fool's, here's a story we ran some time ago about Poe's balloon hoax: http://blog.insidetheapple.net/2011/04/balloon-hoax-of-1844_13.html, a prank that Poe pulled on The New York Sun.
