Reviews

"A treasure trove of buildings and colorful stories that you likely never knew about on one of the world's most storied streets."
-The Daily Beast

"Walking Broadway is about seeing the city with fresh eyes."
-New York Post

"The perfect pandemic companion, inspiring movement, fresh air, and contemplation. Hennessey takes readers through the city's oldest north-south street, which began as the Wickquasgeck trail before the arrival of Europeans, and describes the evolution of its social, economic, and cultural history through the lens of its most interesting buildings."
-Oculus

"A splendid guide for a summer stroll through Manhattan."
-The Bowery Boys

"Hennessey has thoughtfully created fourteen walks readers can take with book in hand. . . . It doesn't matter the time of day - morning, afternoon, or evening. Put on your comfortable shoes and get ready for a wonderful walking tour."
-Experience Nomad

"You'll love the author's engaging style as you explore the reasons why a building exists in the style it features, along with a comprehensive understanding of the historic, social, economic, and political forces that coalesced to shape Broadway's growth and character."
-Beauty News NYC
