Google Book Search

Slavs of New York has just discovered Google Book Search and you should too. A number of Slavic New York gems are pretty much there for the taking. Here’s some selections to get you started:

A useful guidebook to help in the search for Slavic food in the five boroughs is
Nosh New York: The Food Lover's Guide to New York City's Most Delicious Neighborhoods by Myra Alperson.

Also check out
The Spiritual Traveler: The Guide to Sacred Spaces and Peaceful Places by Edward F Bergman, which gives details for many Slavic churches in the city.

Many Slavic communities show up in
The Financial District's Lost Neighborhood by Barbara, Martin Rizek, Joanne Medvecky.

New York figures prominently into
A Passion for Polka: Old-Time Ethnic Music in America by Victor Greene and is mentioned throughout Russians in America by Alison Behnke as well.
