About the Author

Michelle and James Nevius met in New York City while Michelle was studying art history and archaeology at Columbia University and James was at New York University studying English and American literature. They launched Michelle Nevius Tours in 2000 to provide in-depth tours of New York City neighborhoods, which now cover most of Manhattan and Brooklyn Heights. Their tours combine history, architecture, art, and culture, with a focus on uncovering hidden history and intriguing stories that might not be readily apparent to the casual visitor. Their guided tours have become a regular part of academic programs at The Columbia School of Journalism, The New York School of Law, Siena College in Albany, and Texas A&M's Mays School of Business as well as for non-academic clients Brown Brothers Harriman, Fordham University alumni, The Hofstra University Museum of Art, and many more.

I can't wait to walk Manhattan again with this book in hand." -- Noah D. Oppenheim, coauthor of the bestselling The Intellectual Devotional(TM) series
"As a longtime New Yorker, I never tire of walking the streets and uncovering something new about the world's most fascinating city, where every street has a story to tell. Inside the Apple is a gem of a book, filled with nuggets about New York's extraordinary past, from the sidewalks up. Whether you are a tourist exploring for the very first time or a seasoned walker in the city, this book is a must." -- Kenneth C. Davis, author of the bestsellers America's Hidden History and Don't Know Much About(R) History
