Join us at Strand's Times Square Kiosk to celebrate NYCxDESIGN with Justin Davidson, author of Magnetic City: A Walking Companion to New York. Magnetic City takes us to popular destinations as well as to residential neighborhoods rarely on the casual traveler’s beat.
His New York comes alive as we read about the stories behind landmarks and street corners, about the visionaries and architects who created the city by constantly destroying and rebuilding it. Each itinerary is a trip you can take by foot (or bike, or ferry) … or a journey you can take in your mind without ever leaving your armchair.
There will be a 30 minute talk with a Q&A to follow, and time for a signing after. Books will be available for purchase at the kiosk; this event is free and open to attend.
