5.0 étoiles sur 5 What a challenge -- but this codger will try to catch up with Helmreich's help 27 septembre 2015
Par Robert C Ross - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is an inspiration to this codger, who has inherited the walking gene from his grandfather Peter who clocked thousands of miles in Madison, Wisconsin. I've hiked in London for over a thousand miles, in Paris for five hundred miles, and so far in New York approaching 2,500 miles, including four times around Manhattan Island -- so far.

Helmreich has outdone me, but if I can last as long as Peter did, I might get to 5,000 miles.

This book works great on my iPhone, and I carry several others as well, for further information or for different points of view. They include:

The Encyclopedia of New York City: Second Edition -- a treasure trove of information by many excellent authors; the search function could be improved but the iPhone search function really works well enough.

New York City Essential Guide: Best NYC Travel Guide for Tourists -- I have two dozen for Manhattan -- but this one is great for answering questions of how to get to various sites -- it amazes me how many people ask me directions.

The Bronx: The Ultimate Guide to New York City's Beautiful Borough (Rivergate Regionals Collection) -- You simply cannot top Ultan for accuracy, enthusiasm or love of this somewhat neglected borough.

Walking Brooklyn: 30 tours exploring historical legacies, neighborhood culture, side streets and waterways -- there are so many wonderful guidebooks to Brooklyn, but for a walker, this one, supplemented by Google for each walk, cannot be beat for this codger.

Staten Island: A Blue Guide Travel Monograph (Blue Guides) -- smallest borough, smallest number of attractions, small guidebook fitting it all perfectly.

William Helmreich, I am going to channel Peter and walk in your footsteps and see New York City through your eyes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Monumental Achievement 3 octobre 2014

Professor William Helmreich walked every street in the city for a total of 6,000 miles. As a native New Yorker I was fascinated to learn things about the city I had never known. It has waterfalls, lakes, graffiti art , murals, thousands of monuments, shrines and a street called “force pipe road” (the list goes on and on). Also, I was surprised and very happy to learn how green the city is. There are parks galore, gardens on the ground and on rooftops, and actual wildlife preserves. But more important than the structures and the spaces are the people. He discusses the different neighborhoods, the effects of immigration and of gentrification. He also answers the old question of whether the city is a melting pot or a salad bowl. The answer is neither but it turns out that is a good thing. And that’s not the only good thing. Prejudice is down, tolerance is up and crime is way down. As a New Yorker who lived in the city through the 60’s and 70’s this all feels somewhat surreal. When I started to read this book I expected it to be fascinating but I never expected it to be uplifting. How did the professor manage this? He used all the usual tools of the sociologist including interviewing all the previous mayors, and doing extensive research. But no amount of research, polling or using social media could have produced this book. In an era when most people have supercomputers in their pocket and too much communication occurs electronically, Professor Helmreich pounded the pavement ( six pairs of sneakers worth), and talked to people and learned about their lives, hopes and dreams. That alone makes this book a monumental achievement.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating book for those fascinated about the Big Town! 25 septembre 2014
Par dave strasburg - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As this reviewer is into making long walks in interesting cities, he was under the impression that this would be a travelogue of New York City; from somebody who, admirably, has walked all 6000 miles of New York City streets. That impression was erroneous, as the book is, in fact, about various aspects of the reality of New York today; these include gentrification, immigrants, criminality, and much more. After the initial disappointment, this book turned out to be intriguing, not to mention hard to put down even for a moment! It is greatly recommended, but only for those with a keen interest in the urban center of the great country that is America. Another plus is that the information within is all contemporary and current - the book was released in 2013.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I for one didn't know 13 septembre 2014
Par Jan P Hazebroek - Publié sur

Helmreich's book was a fascinating read for someone like me who grew up in The Bronx during the 1960s and 1970s and then moved away. His narrative, bolstered by extensive first-hand experiences walking the city along with his understanding of relevant academic literature, was enlightening. Nice to know how things have improved in many (but not all) neighborhoods. As other reviewers have pointed out, Helmreich's book is not about buildings, bridges, subways, etc. There are plenty of good sources for such topics. Rather, this book deals with people in relation to their neighbors, their environments, and their histories. Yes, it would be nice if the pictures were larger, and some topics are dwelled upon while others are brushed over, but all in all I found The New York Nobody Knows a really good read.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome book! 9 octobre 2016

A few years ago I happened upon "The New York Nobody Knows: Walking 6,000 Miles in the City," by accident; if all accidents were this profitable to encouraging us to invite each other into our lives as was this book for me, then give me another shot! As I was writing my latest book William's book came along just in time to make a difference for me personally, and for insight to what I was writing.
-Personally, because it challenged me to want to be more involved with people: day to day people I know, family, and perfect strangers.
-Regarding the insight in my writing, "The New York Nobody Knows: Walking 6,000 Miles in the City" gave me many springboard moments from which I could continue on a theme which may have been halted if I had not read his book.
William B Helmreich is one of my favorite authors.
