The 7,000-pound bronze bull behind Bowling Green is not supposed to be there. Nearly 20,000 slaves and free Blacks are buried near the Federal Office Building on Broadway. Queens boasts not just one but two major arts facilities. With extremely detailed descriptions, clear maps, and striking photography Haimoff and Feierman include the famous spots as necessary along these well-rationed walks, but concentrate on the places only the locals know, including local places of worship, gathering places with history, and even the quiet getaways inside museums, hotels and train stations. They cover the full city, and include walks in such often-overlooked spaces as Union Square, the meat packing district, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and such gems as Roosevelt Island, the South Street Seaport, Sutton Place, Ellis Island and the Brooklyn Bridge. This could serve well as the basis for a lifetime of nice walks in the city. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
