New York has extended itself to the outer boroughs - it's not the The CIty anymore. But does Williamsburg as the capital of beards, fixed gears and craft beer really represent the city's identity? And where is Manhattan alive and kicking today? To answer these questions we spoke with a diverse range of people: parents of eight from Brooklyn, a couple who run a restaurant in SoHo, a Danish artist from Chinatown, a musician from Williamsburg and a style icon who moved from Belgium 25 years ago. 38HOURS is about the value and worth of the experience. It's about the smell, taste and feel that such experiences conjure up. This guide will hone your sensitivities and improve your level of engagement with the city. In order to do so, 38HOURS have drawn from their network of locals to guide you through multiple versions of this effervescent city.
