All About New York in Store PDF

A charming, quirky look at one hundred New York shop windows and interiors.

From Manhattan mainstays like Katz's Delicatessen and Macy's to idiosyncratic emporiums such as the 99¢ Store on East 14th Street or Dr. Rico Perez's drugstore in the Bronx, here are some of New York's most delightful and eye-catching shops and their display windows. Some of these windows feature collapsing heaps of merchandise, while goods in others are neatly stacked and arranged with a traditional shopkeeper's precision, creating geometric patterns out of everyday objects.

Juxtaposed with each photograph is the store's business card, which details its name and location so the reader can track down his or her favorites.

While chain stores do exist in New York, the city still offers a myriad of independent, one-of-a-kind shops. This delightful survey will appeal equally to New Yorkers and the city's visitors. 200 color illustrations.

All About Best and Worst Travels: (An Anecdotal Exploration by an Upper Middle Class Adventurer, Traveling to Old and New Worlds, Desiring Comfort, Safety, Good ... Heat Cold, and Shelter for the Night) PDF

Carver writes in a style not unlike Bill Bryson, candidly regaling readers with tales of his worst experiences (“Some of the worst were worse than others.”) as well as the best: “I enjoyed a great Abercrombie & Kent trip to China because it was a great adventure, a great itinerary, a great tour group with a great tour director, great hotels (except for a noisy Sheraton in Guilin), great weather, and great tour management. Seven greats out of seven ain’t bad.”

He says, “Great expectations when traveling are usually the source of my greatest disappointments! I’m like the guy in a New Yorker cartoon studying a brochure telling his travel agent: ‘I am so looking forward to this. I can’t wait to be disappointed.’”

He writes “How to Survive Disasters like Theft, Accidents, etc.,” and at the risk of seeming disingenuously obvious, he provides an exhaustive list covering every possible thing that can go wrong (Getting Sick, Getting Killed, Getting Lost, etc.), offering suggestions for solving dilemmas. He concludes with “Did I fail to mention Getting Bored to Death.”

He describes trips with Yale Exes and travels to Italy, China, and Romania where he taught English with Global Volunteers.

5Travel writing as "First Person Fiesta"!
By W. Sibley
"BEST AND WORST TRAVELS is that requisite blend of acerbic scrutiny and golly-gee wonder that all good travel commentary necessitates. Witty, sophisticated, captivating, incisive, bitchy - reading Ramon Carver is like being escorted around the world by the spiritual love-child of Dorothy Parker and Marco Polo!"

5Quirky, fun, informative
By Mary E., West
Not "your father's Oldsmobile" guide book to travel. I found this refreshingly different -- an insightful, irreverent, personal look at the pleasures and pitfalls Carver found in extensive globe trotting. A good read, whether one has just returned from a trip, is planning one, or just wants to settle down and enjoy.
