In the fastest-changing city in the world are dozens of shops and restaurants that have been serving New Yorkers for more than a century: The Historic Shops and Restaurants of New York points out these hidden spots and reveals their long and interesting histories. Featured shops include a speakeasy, a print shop specializing in rare maps, and the haberdashery where Abraham Lincoln traded in his backwoods cap for a silk top hat, a Lower East Side delicatessen, and shops where purveyors of riding boots, andirons, brass beds, and vintage colognes have plied their trades for generations. The addresses, phone numbers, subway stops, and hours for each of the many featured restaurants, gourmet shops, cafes, saloons and bars, hardware stores, and home furnishing stores are included.
