About the Author

Ayun Halliday is the author of "The Big Rumpus"; "Dirty Sugar Cookies: Culinary Observations, Questionable Taste"; and "No Touch Monkey!" She lives in Brooklyn, New York.


"If I could still walk the streets of New York among my People, I would use this truly funny and truly affordable guide book. It kicks ass." --Stephen Colbert "Any old guide book can tell you how to get to the Statue of Liberty, but the "ZG2NYC" tells you where to go for punk rock rope skipping. In Queens. It makes me want to go climb on decommissioned ships in Staten Island right now, but I can't because I'm in a cocktail dress at 10 AM." --Alex McCord, "Real Housewife of New York" "An old school pleasure, the travel equivalent of a lovingly assembled mix tape--useful and full of surprises." --Rolf Potts, "Vagabonding" "If you do everything in this book, you will be more of a New Yorker than even the New Yorkiest New Yorker in New York." --Matt Gross, "New York Times Frugal Traveler" "Packs a crapload of inside information into its 256 pages, and for your bucks you even get artsy illustrations from DIY folks." --"Ink 19" "Balances a small, healthy dose of making fun of oneself with a snarky and sassy perspective of the world. Her world is New York City, which she describes so well in her adventures so I knew I was in for a treat when I saw that Ms. Halliday herself cooked up this tasty guide to New York built exactly for my anarcho-feminist-who-still-watches-crappy/sexist-reality-show leanings. This is the guide to New York to use when you don't have much money, you're open to exploring, and you don't mind public transit." --"Elevate Difference" "In the back of the thick, anecdotal guide to all things New York are a bunch of hand written street maps, like your friend might scrawl out for you to help you get around, but instead of being unintelligible and confusing these marker markings are completely clear and actually helpful. Which pretty much sums up the book: tons of tips about trains, tattoo parlors, bike shops, bars, and free museum passes scribbled out with the personality and character of loopy cursive handwriting...but you can actually read it and it helps." --"Roctober" "Understanding a living city is best done by living in it. "ZGNYC" is a guide to the life of NY that isn't the life presented by tourism, but instead the best of the best that's off the beaten path and that truly reflects the NY lifestyle that real New Yorkers live. A guide for the NYC tourist who doesn't just want to be a tourist." --James A Cox, "Midwest Book Review"
