[edit] Information

Searching for Secrets: Series 1 Every great metropolis has its secrets, some tucked away in the annuls of history and others hidden in plain sight. From New York The City That Never Sleeps , the single golden fire hydrant in San Francisco to the strange shape of London's black cab to Berlin's pink pipes, city landmarks often embody unknown stories, some whimsical, some sinister, but all fascinating in their own way. Join us as we journey back in time to uncover buried tales in cities across the globe, following local guides and historians on a six-part journey that is both travel exposes and urban mystery.

New York goes by "The Big Apple," "The City That Never Sleeps," and a host of other nicknames. But it could also be called the City of Secrets because it has them everywhere...if you know where to look. Join us as we tour this massive metropolis to reveal its hidden history and surprising anecdotes. From the Statue of Liberty's off-limits torch to Washington Heights' boulder of Bennet Avenue to the miles of underground pipes that make up the cities steam system, it's a tour of New York unlike any you've taken before.
