New York City’s “unofficial talent scout” New York Nico has announced his debut book is on the way. Entitled New York Nico’s Guide to NYC, the first-ever print offering from the local legend chronicles his favorite hotspots – and of course, personalities – throughout the city.

“I’ve been working on this project for the past 2+ years, interviewing and photographing some of my favorite people in NYC with the mission of creating a comprehensive list of 100 of my favorite local businesses,” he wrote in an Instagram caption.

The “locals-only” guide includes restaurants of all calibers, vintage stores, bookstores, coffee shops and hole-in-the-wall neighborhood spots.
