Book Summary

Few cities make your heart race faster just by standing on their streets, but New York exerts an influence that stretches far beyond the city's limits. New York: The Story of A Great City tells concisely and entertainingly how the city developed from the land inhabited by the Lenape people to the great metropolis it is today. Organised both thematically and chronologically, the book brings the city's history to life. The book contains stunning images as wells as documents printed on the page, which includes, diary extracts, immigration papers, maps, newspaper clippings, playbills, letters and posters; highlighting the ups and downs of the city's past. As Agatha Christie once said, "It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City, New York City is itself a detective story." Now the reader can discover that story in the comfort of his or her own armchair.
