During my marathon shopping spree, I popped into Anthropologie, where more times than not I am drawn to the houseware items and books more than the pricey (and often flimsy) clothing. I was on a mission and couldn’t linger long but did manage to glimpse this lovely book.
Apparently The New York Times has a whole series of 36-hour destinations on their website, which include overseas locales like Mendoza, but this charming travel guide focuses exclusively on the United States and Canada, i.e. ideal weekend getaways. From quickly flipping through, it seems that each blurb is informative yet succinct. With the retro illustrations and enticing tidbits, The New York Times 36 Hours seems like an ideal coffee table book — and one that I might actually pick up and read, too.
