Including personal stories and historical facts, Ortis teaches readers about local landmarks in New York City such as the Conference House on Staten Island, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral and the Yorkville District. Ortís also writes about the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown and Little Italy, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square and many other local attractions.

“New York City is the Mecca of the world tourism,” Ortís states, adding that his book shares, “a vivid and sincere description of the town of New York, done with love and admiration.”
