HOW TO FIND OLD NEW YORKMap for Herb Lester Associates
Make no mistake, the minds behind Herb Lester are gifted with deep knowledge of the (nearly) forgotten places, faded ephemera, and stories behind the missing teeth of our great cities. Preservationists of the finest sort, their thoughtfully-designed and illustrated guides celebrate "usual and unusual" destinations, before many of them vanish (along with a way of life), as progress sweeps the dust from the city's edges, and we find our former, better selves lost in the glare of the value-engineered, the cheap and the new. I was fortunate to join them early in their remarkable arc of printed matter, with this illustrated map of Manhattan's finest traditional establishments. Click HERE to purchase your own!
