  “If a sense of the sacred is going to survive, it will have to make it in New York.”
--Roger Housden
  Spiritual Places In and Around New York City is a thoughtful, well-designed guide to the places that Emily Squires and Len Belzer have found valuable in their efforts to maintain their own personal sanity amid the hectic pace of life in Manhattan. Each entry lends spiritual insights and a sensual feel of the place that invites readers to plumb for themselves the mystery and depths of its sacredness. Basic information such as the address, hours, admission price, and driving directions is listed, as well as a detailed description of what each place has to offer. Peppered throughout the text are inspiring and thought-provoking quotes that relate to each entry. Entries include information about Spiritual Communities, Day Trips, Gardens, Museums, Learning and Healing Centers, Libraries and Bookstores, Nature Walks, Restaurants, Overnights, as well as Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu and Sufi places of worship.
