The fourth most popular travel destination in the world, New York City draws millions of visitors annually, including more than fifty-four million people in 2014 alone. At the center of this white-hot destination is none other than the borough of Brooklyn—the mecca of twenty-first century cool and style.

Rachel takes you into some of the borough’s most diverse and charming neighborhoods, including Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Prospect Heights, and DUMBO. She begins with valuable travel advice, including a precisely selected list of hotels, cafes, bars, bakeries, festivals, salons, and markets. She provides a sample itinerary for trip planning, as well as a comprehensive list of Brooklyn’s main attractions—including its major landmarks, parks and gardens, museums and zoos, noteworthy restaurants, bars and breweries, and artisanal food shops. She then takes you into individual neighborhoods, exploring each thoroughly by shop type and goods, providing the complete address, phone number, and website for each. Insider Brooklyn is filled with must-have advice on trendsetting furniture and décor; antiques and vintage; clothing for men, women, and children; jewelry, both affordable and high-end; beauty—makeup, perfume, and salons; health and wellness, including juices, gear, and fitness specialists; children’s goods; stylish kitchen essentials and decorating for the table; unique art and objects; rare oddities and curiosities; and favorite bookstores, specialty grocers, and niche shops. The stores have been chosen with an expert’s eye, including new discoveries, popular mainstays, and neighborhood gems worth visiting. Bursting with invaluable insights, helpful tips, and must-see destinations, Insider Brooklyn is an indispensable resource and a visual feast for tourists and business visitors headed to the city, locals—both Brooklynites and other New Yorkers—and armchair travelers who simply want to dream about and shop it from home.

The Fashion Insiders’ Guides are carefully curated compendiums of the current hotspots, classic haunts, and hidden gems of the world’s greatest fashion destinations. A former Parisian living in New York, French Vogue correspondent Carole Sabas was often approached by friends and colleagues on their way to Paris for Fashion Week, looking for the best place for a quick facial, early morning yoga, or to meet a friend for a drink. So many people asked, in fact, that she produced a small guide filled with advice, which she gave out for free. Requests for more information and other cities came pouring in. Abrams is now making Sabas’s Paris and New York guides available to everyone, with expanded content including chapters such as “Eating and Drinking,” “Beauty,” “Health,” “Shopping,” “Art,” and an eclectic selection of odds and ends called “Might Be Useful One Day.” Written with a light touch and in a friendly tone, each entry includes a description of the recommended spots with hints about when to go, who to ask for, and what to get, as well as location and contact information. The inclusion of additional advice from local fashion celebrities on their favorite places to frequent puts readers confidently in-the-know. Peppered throughout with drawings by a noted and local fashion illustrator, these beautifully designed guides will be the must-have accessories of the season. Praise for The Fashion Insiders' Guide to New York: “Hidden gems are finally unveiled in this posh and savvy guide for sophisticated visitors and newcomers to the Big City . . . this is one must-have guide for stylish New York travelers.” —Ambassador magazine

Nonstop Metropolis, the culminating volume in a trilogy of atlases, conveys innumerable unbound experiences of New York City through twenty-six imaginative maps and informative essays. Bringing together the insights of dozens of experts--from linguists to music historians, ethnographers, urbanists, and environmental journalists--amplified by cartographers, artists, and photographers, it explores all five boroughs of New York City and parts of nearby New Jersey. We are invited to travel through Manhattan's playgrounds, from polyglot Queens to many-faceted Brooklyn, and from the resilient Bronx to the mystical kung fu hip-hop mecca of Staten Island. The contributors to this exquisitely designed and gorgeously illustrated volume celebrate New York City's unique vitality, its incubation of the avant-garde, and its literary history, but they also critique its racial and economic inequality, environmental impact, and erasure of its past. Nonstop Metropolis allows us to excavate New York's buried layers, to scrutinize its political heft, and to discover the unexpected in one of the most iconic cities in the world. It is both a challenge and homage to how New Yorkers think of their city, and how the world sees this capital of capitalism, culture, immigration, and more.
