Michael Musto: A Guidebook for Natives

September 1, 2011 2:47 PM
Author: Robert Sietsema
Publisher: ECW Press
Publication Date: Mar. 1999

I’m old-fashioned so I use guidebooks. I have one written by Robert Sietsema, my colleague at the Village Voice, called “Secret New York.” It’s great because it takes you away from the most obvious New York places like the Russian Tea Room and Empire State Building. Rather than organizing it geographically, he’s broken the book into topics like “All-you-can-eat,” “Contraception,” “Williamsburg” and “Witchcraft.” That way, according to the guide’s introduction, “you can browse what interests you most.”

Michael Musto is an entertainment columnist for the Village Voice. He’s a regular pop culture commentator on television. He recently published his fourth book, “Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back.”
