Some of the last classic mom-and-pop businesses in the US are in the Big Apple: despite the fast-moving, ever-changing nature of the City and the recent onslaught of chain stores, many small businesses in New York and its five boroughs have survived and thrived year after year, generation after generation. New York Originals: A Guide to the City's Classic Shops and Mom and Pops is based on the Emmy Award-winning television series of the same name. Both seek out small business gems around the city that have resisted change and held on to their oldworld ways. Now, a unique tour through all five boroughs introduces readers to 75 of these unique shops, restaurants, services, and manufacturers.

Vogel, a shoe factory in Soho so old it made boots for the Union Army; Patsy's, a pizzeria in Harlem whose coalfired oven gives its pizza such a unique flavor that Frank Sinatra once had dozens of the pies flown to his home in California; and Russ and Daughters, an appetizing shop whose owners still use their great-grandfather's time-consuming, labour-intensive recipes
