Additional Book Details

Nooks and Corners of Old New York celebrates the people, places, and events that shaped New York City's history. The author—a newspaper reporter and novelist who wrote extensively on New York's early history—paints a vivid picture of several centuries of stories, scandals, and celebrations. While the history may be old, its appeal is not dated; any fan of contemporary city lore will be fascinated by the many echoes that can be discovered by learning more about the city's colorful past. Whether an armchair traveler or someone retracing the author's steps, the reader will enjoy imagining a city that still featured sheep meadows, fresh streams, and verdant hills. And, surprisingly, many of the landmarks highlighted in this text remain on their original sites, testimony to the fact that the ever-changing city still has a history to be appreciated. Read selectively as you roam the streets or from first to last page in the comfort of your favorite chair, Nooks and Corners of Old New York will entertain and inform you about New York's rich story.
