A celebration of her life-long love for New York, Hanff embarked on this project as an assignment, and realized she had not been to many of the main tourist attractions- the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, the World Trade Center.

Hanff weaves in historical events and tidbits on some of New York's most notorious personalities.
