Despite the changing face of the city, we are still surrounded by old-time New York—it's just a matter of knowing where to look for it. Mitch Broder made the search for old, vintage New York—its restaurants, shops, delis, bars and more—his personal mission. Now he's written a book, Discovering Vintage New York, as a guide to your very own search for old New York! Find out where the classic New York experiences live on in the city of today! From the well-known (Katz's Deli, Caffe Reggio) to the obscure, you'll discover joys of vintage New York—in all its eccentricities, tastes, and charms! Moderated by award winning writer, essayist and commentator, Adam Gopnik!
