Spiritual Places In and Around New York City is your roadmap to the myriad spaces and places around the boroughs that soothe the psyche and gladden the spirit. as well as a few extraordinarily peaceful destinations worth venturing over the city line for. From restful gardens to quiet galleries to restaurants that feed both our corporeal and incorporeal bodies, and more, Emily Squires and Len Belzer, who both unfortunately passed away in recent years, share those locations (some almost secret, others surprisingly public) that helped them relax amid the frenetic pace of their favorite city.
In brief sketches of these spiritual respites, they reveal the insights they've come to while visiting each, and convey a palpable sense of the wise and serene essence each imparts upon us. This is a must-have for harried New Yorkers and curious visitors alike.
