Praise for Footprints in New York:

"A fascinating and magical guided tour of the Big Apple." —Joe Franklin

"Footprints in New York has some of the sharpest, most informative meditations on the history of the city that I have encountered in a long time.”

— Edwin G. Burrows, Pulitzer-Prize winning co-author of Gotham and author of Forgotten Patriots.

 “New York City’s history is fantastically deep and rich. Despite the best efforts of the city’s developers and political powers to obliterate it all, there’s still much of it left to see and many stories to tell—if you have the right guides. You'll find none better than James and Michelle Nevius in this ingeniously conceived, thoroughly informed, and companionably written time machine of a book.”
— John Strausbaugh, author of The Village: 400 Years of Beats and Bohemians, Radicals and Rogues, a History of Greenwich Village  

“Reading Footprints in New York is like wandering through the city’s history with smart friends.... You sense that Michelle and James Nevius are rightly proud of New York for being America’s most fascinating place.”

— TM Rives, author of Secret New York: An Unusual Guide

Praise for Inside the Apple:

“A smart and entertaining window on the city of the past.” — The New York Times

 "I can't wait to walk Manhattan again with this book in hand." -- Noah D. Oppenheim, coauthor of the bestselling The Intellectual Devotional™ series

 “Inside the Apple is a gem of a book, filled with nuggets about New York’s extraordinary past, from the sidewalks up. Whether you are a tourist exploring for the very first time or a seasoned walker in the city, this book is a must.” - — Kenneth C. Davis, author of the bestsellers America's Hidden History and Don't Know Much About ® History
