New York has captured the imagination of would-be New Yorkers across the globe for generations. Its contemporary incarnation is perhaps best captured by the Meatpacking District, where the prostitutes and meat handlers of Adrian Lyne’s Fatal Attraction have given way to a mix of high-end fashion retail and entertainment. Sweep aside the gloss and gimmickry, however, and New York unveils the innumerable treasures of its contemporary self—Downtown’s excellent coffee outlets, world class theatre and off-the-beaten-track arts, the classy dining establishments of Midtown’s power set, and Brooklyn’s top-notch locavore fare. The Analogue Guide provides a short-list of the best of all of this, with photographs and maps throughout.
