Kelly's showcase

3/10

Fascinating subject, not badly done after all. With the exception of Kelly Choi who uses the main character of New York City to showcase herself in the latest fashions. She is much better suited for sensational material such as Top Chef, as she does not understand the nature of a documentary feature. With its short and quick trivia character, "Secrets of New York" does not leave any lasting impression. Kelly's interviewing skills of the experts leave a lot to be desired, as she shows more interest in her own voice. And at the end of each episode it is not apparent what legacy remains in present day New York. New York will hold on to its wealth of secrets: Kelly Choi has none.

Educational and intriguing.

If you ever wanted to take a trip through the history of NYC, then this show will give it to you in spades. The show touches upon various aspects of NYC with historical locations, people, and innovations that made The Big Apple into what it is today; one of the largest, most famous cities in the world and also the fashion capitol of the world. Hosted by the lovely Kelly Choi, this show is one to watch if you're a history buff or just want to get to know the city that never sleeps a little bit more. I've seen a few episodes and my overall impression is that it's one of the best documentary shows out there on TV even despite the fact that it's not on cable, like for example, The History Channel. Watch this show and you'll see what I mean. And if your a tourist, this show may convince you to visit NYC as it's a perfect starting point for a vacation destination.
