Zinester's Guide to NYC
Society of American Travel Writers Guidebook Award Winner! In
the tradition of our DIY city guide The
Zinester's Guide to Portland,
we're proud to announce our brand-new New York City version! The
Zinester's Guide to NYC is a top-to-bottom, on-the-cheap, warts-and-all exploration of the city
that never sleeps. Whether you're looking for scam-able coffee or a place to grab a Japanese breakfast, art supplies, volunteer opportunities, or a 4-story Korean bathhouse, the ZG2NYC
has it all. Anecdotal and opinionated, the ZG2NYC has listings from over twenty New York-based zine publishers, toiling under the benevolent umbrella of Ayun
Halliday (Chief Primatologist of The East
Village Inky zine, author of No Touch Monkey!) “The
best way to
experience the city is to really participate in it," Halliday says.
the parade when you can march in it? People should know that they can
guest bar-tend, play bike polo in Sara Roosevelt Park, create a public
park in a parking space on National Park(ing) Day, and submit
the 5-minute movies they shoot on the boardwalk to next
year's Coney Island Film Festival.” Like our Portland guide, the
pocket-size NYC book is divided into illustrated, user friendly
sections (Bars! Pizza! Historic buildings! Veggie options! Open mics!
Craft supplies! The keys to low-budget NYC romance!) that give up the
goods for first-timers and native New Yorkers alike.
