About the event:
In 2011, Betsy Bober Polivy had a crazy idea to walk the entire original Manhattan Grid — from 1st Street to 155th Street. As she traversed the side streets from the East River to the Hudson, documenting her journey on her website (sideways.nyc), she had the amazing opportunity to meet the owners behind each of the small businesses. She listened to their stories and shared them on her site. The project took nearly six years to complete. At the beginning of the pandemic, Betsy made the decision to push through and self-publish Walking Manhattan Sideways – Side street businesses that have stood the test of time. The book celebrates many of the places that Betsy visited.
