This all-new series title covers the entire Empire State, including a bizarre cemetery on 400 acres in the Bronx and a renowned restaurant in Rochester known as the Home of the Garbage Plate. If you can’t do it here, you can’t do it anywhere!

From the Back Cover:

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Empire State has to offer! · Visit the idyllic village whose residents “talk to dead people”; the town where monuments to its most
   famous daughter, Lucille Ball, abound; America’s one-and-only Kazoo factory and museum; and the
   National Buffalo Wing Festival with its “Running of The Chickens”—i.e., people dressed as chickens.
· Learn how abolitionist James Caleb Jackson invented granula, the first cold breakfast cereal; why one  of Rochester’s favorite eateries is known as the Home of the Garbage Plate; and why the famous  negative ions of Niagara Falls feel so good.
· Meet the Wonderful Wizard of Chittenango, L. Frank Baum; Panda the Seeing Eye Horse;   Brooklyn’s “little green invaders”; and the night watchman at the Fallow Hollow Deer Farm—a    donkey!
