In Awkwafina's NYC, Awkwafina (aka Queens native Nora Lum) brings the hilarious and creative irreverence that has garnered 1 million YouTube hits to 10 original walking-tour adventures through the undiscovered NYC, appealing to foodies, nightlifers, history stooges, and art buffs alike. From a historical tour of Staten Island to authentic Caribbean food in Bed-Stuy, from Louis Armstrong's house in Corona to water views in Washington Heights, Akwafina unearths New York's "hidden gems," and you get to go on the adventures with her. Between tours, Akwkwafina scopes out the secret underbellies of a handful of iconic New York City destinations (Empire State Building, Union Square, etc.) and describes the experience fully, in grave, grimey detail. The book is also littered with limericks, sidebars, and graphics delving into subway etiquette, how to people-watch in NYC, and what to say when homeless people yell at you. A selection of hand-drawn maps of the boroughs and dynamic four-color photography throughout make each tour come to life, whether you choose to hit the streets or follow along from the comfort of your bed.
