New York City is loud and getting louder, but there are places within the city that are relatively quiet and comfortable.  This site is dedicated to finding those places where noise is manageable and a conversation can be had without screaming.

We intend to make this site self-supporting and will, to that end, explore various means to generate revenue, including advertising.  That said, we will only recommend places that are objectively and subjectively comfortable and will not accept payment in exchange for a favorable review.

In the end, we want this site to be your guide to a quieter, more enjoyable city.  There will always be those who want to be in a loud and raucous place.  This site is for the rest of us.  We hope you find it useful.
