Please join us for a book signing with Siobhan Wall, author of Quiet New York, a book about New York City's hidden gems, one of which is MOBIA!
It’s the city that never sleeps – crowded and cacophonous, creative and complex. But within New York’s skyscraper canyons and bustling boroughs there are surprisingly quiet places – unknown to many natives and virtually unimaginable to most visitors. Quiet New York is a guide to that other, hidden city where tired tourists can enjoy enticing small museums and peaceful gardens, and harried natives can discover places to relax and recuperate – places of sanctuary and worship, eclectic shops and cafes, libraries, galleries, and waterfront parks. Profiling over 120 quiet places and covering all five boroughs, with evocative photographs and a short description for each location (including travel, access, and contact details) Quiet New York reveals the tranquil corners of the world's most stimulating city.
SIOBHAN WALL is a writer, artist, and author of Quiet Paris, Quiet Amsterdam and Quiet London. She has worked as a senior lecturer at universities in London and Oxford. Her paintings have been shown at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, the ICA London, and as part of the permanent collection of women's art at New Hall, Cambridge.
