Great authors don’t just paint a picture of New York attractions: They have a way of making city sights burrow under your skin and remain there for life. Some of the most beautiful NYC buildings, best museums and most gorgeous NYC parks have all appeared in literature about Gotham. But since the metropolis is always changing, many favorite New York places depicted in novels will have been demolished and replaced by the time you’re ready to finally visit. Thankfully, readers’ starry-eyed expectations won’t be let down by these iconic (and not so iconic) literary landmarks from some of the best books about New York.
