Book Description

4 April 2013
In I Never Knew That About New York Christopher Winn digs beneath the gleaming towers and mean streets of New York and discovers its secrets and its hidden treasures. Learn about the extraordinary people who built New York into one of the world's great cities in just 400 years. New York is one of the most photographed and talked about cities in the world but Winn unearths much that is unexpected and unremembered in this fast moving, ever changing metropolis where history is made on a daily basis!

4.0 out of 5 stars For New Yorkers 4 April 2014
By D. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I wish I had had this small book when living in Manhattan when I think of the interesting bldgs.and history that I passed by in a mindless fashion and the trivia that went with it. It was divided into districts. on a map which made it easier. I would think only a New Yorker past or present could truly appreciate this book.
