After living overseas and retiring, the author and her husband decided to continue with their adventures by spending a year in New York City. Idaho to New York City: A Year in the Big Apple is the exhilarating, absorbing account of that adventure. On foot, bus, and train they relentlessly explored all the well-known and lesser sights and delights of all five borooughs, from the last natural forest in Manhattan to the last pony stable in Brooklyn to the last independent bookseller in Queens. Baseball and historic Richmondtown on Staten Island. Fresh pasta on Arthur Avenue and the E.A. Poe cottage in the Bronx. Buhkarian kebobs, Flushing Chinatown's dumplings, Schmidt's candy. Russian baths, concerts in the Harlem Meer, walks in the wildlife refuge. And everywhere they celebrated--Halloween in Windsor Terrace, the Christmas lights at Dykker Heights, the mermaid parade of Coney Island.
