New Yorkers love their museums. It's an obsession. From Gauguin to gangsters, finance to food, New York City has the richest museum culture in the world. Only here, can a former run down tenement, be transformed to one of the most beloved museums in the city. And for New Yorkers, simply finding the best museums is an urban sport itself; a personal quest to seek out the cool, the curious and the uncanny.

Consider this book your little cheat sheet. A treasure guide to the secret corners of the iconic museums, a field guide to the little museums you never dreamed existed. Dive in. Press pause from the world and discover a curated reality. We learn, we grow, we are amused and inspired. And when we leave, we feel a little more connected to the city around us, and to ourselves. And that's what being a New Yorker is all about.

Wendy Lubovich is a museum buff extraordinaire. As a private guide in New York City, she takes clients from around the world to museums big and small. With a Fine and Decorative Arts degree from Christie's Education in London, she understands the nuance of the art world. And as an experienced journalist, she's developed a keen sense of curiosity. Her passion is to connect people and museums in a creative and conversational way; inspiring a sense of wonder and fun. Ed Lefkowicz is a commercial, corporate, and editorial photographer. A native New Englander who eventually moved to Brooklyn with his wife Cynthia, he enjoys exploring New York City life in all its storied quirkiness. Never without a camera, he chronicles the cognitive dissonances that color life in the boroughs with his alt website TheQuirkySide.com. As photo editor of Edible Queens magazine, he fancies himself a saveur and may have been the first to introduce the American term 'foodie' to the French.
