I’m Off to NYC Saturday, May 22, 2015

For a week, staying in a small, built-in-1841 hotel in the Village. I’m going to Book Expo America and while I’m there, exploring this most fabulous of all cities. I’m really excited. Got a first class ticket with Visa/frequent flyer awards; my MO is to take the red eye, arrive at JFK around 7AM Sunday, stay up all day (no naps), go to bed by midnight, which eases me into eastern time. I usually go to Washington Square on Sunday afternoon to see the acrobats, music groups, skateboarders, then wander the streets, gawking and shooting photos.

Any tips on cafes, restaurants, venues, unique places to visit?

Ground Control to Major Tom,

Commencing countdown, engines on…

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. If your in the village, I would check out Native Leather on 203 Bleeker St. It's a true Greenwich Village survivor.

    Btw, do you have a speaking engagement? I am a big fan.

    All the best,
    Jack

  2. Go to brooklyn and find a good deli!
