A private guide will meet you at your Manhattan hotel - and take you first to explore the Bohemian history of Greenwich Village with the twisted streets that conceal artists' hovels and speakeasies. Recreate Bob Dylan's album cover, see the Stonewall Inn - birthplace of the stonewall riots and gay rights movement. We will share the gruesome story of the murder of the Arch's architect, the Indian Triangle fire, visit the smallest and most ridiculous plot of land in the city. Then to the High Line to see how the city repurposed abandoned train tracks into a unique elevated art walk with gardens, edgy sculptures and architecture all over the streets of the City. You will see the dangling meat hooks and old factory entrances along the route, weaving through Chelsea - home to the world's top galleries and Artists and Fleas - the handmade jewellery, clothing and art market. A wonderful walk into the creative and soulful heart of New York - with its pain and beauty waiting to be discovered.

A powerful collection of essays from actors, activists, athletes, politicians, musicians, writers, and teens, including Senator Amy Klobuchar, actress Alia Shawkat, actor Maulik Pancholy, poet Azure Antoinette, teen activist Gavin Grimm, and many, many others, each writing about a time in their youth when they were held back because of their race, gender, or sexual identity—but persisted. 'Aren't you a terrorist?' 'There are no roles for people who look like you.' 'That's a sin.' 'No girls allowed.' They've heard it all. Actress Alia Shawkat reflects on all the parts she was told she was too 'ethnic' to play. Former NFL player Wade Davis recalls his bullying of gay classmates in an attempt to hide his own sexuality. Teen Gavin Grimm shares the story that led to one of the infamous 'bathroom bills,' and how he's fighting it. Holocaust survivor Fanny Starr tells of her harrowing time in Aushwitz, where she watched her family disappear, one by one. What made them rise up through the hate? What made them overcome the obstacles of their childhood to achieve extraordinary success? How did they break out of society's limited view of who they are and find their way to the beautiful and hard-won lives they live today? With a foreword by Minnesota senator and up-and-coming Democratic party leader Amy Klobuchar, these essays share deeply personal stories of resilience, faith, love, and, yes, persistence. An International Latino Book Award Winner A National Council for Social Studies Selection 'Each tale is a soulful testament to the endurance of the human spirit and reminds readers that they are not alone in their search for self. . . . An unflinchingly honest book that should be required reading for every young person in America.' — Kirkus Reviews, starred review 'An invaluable collection of snapshots of American society.' — VOYA, starred review '[A] gem of a book. . . . There's a lot to study here and talk about on the way to becoming kinder, more empathetic, and most important, compassionate.' — Booklist 'Readers encountering injustice in their own lives may be compelled to take heart—and even action.' — Publishers Weekly 'A powerful collection of voices.' — SLJ 'The sheer variation in writing styles, subject-matters, and structure to these narratives provides readers with inspiration in assorted forms and a complex interpretation of what it means to persist.' — The Bulletin
