    Whether you’re a native New Yorker or a recent transplant, you know it can be hard to make it in the city that never sleeps. Tiny apartments! Long commutes! The agonizing pressure to finally write that screenplay! Of course, there are many, much more serious issues facing NYC residents, but these woes certainly don't make for easy living in the five boroughs, either.

    But, you know what can help you solve your problems (or, at the very least, distract you for a little while)? A good book — preferably written by someone who knows a little bit about what you’re going through. So, when your beloved New York is getting you down, look toward one of these great city-centric reads to cure what ails you.
