5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent look at the shaping of New York, 29 Dec 2011
This review is from: Great Fortune: The Epic of Rockefeller Center (Paperback)
I picked up this book for touristy reasons while in the Rockefeller Center, but it surprised me by how compelling it Is. Amazingly well researched but written with the fluid, easy to read style of a novel, this is more than a look at the (incredibly complex) process of building the Rockefeller Center, it is an incisive look at the shaping of modern New York.

In giving us the story of how this landmark came to be, the book looks at the politics, economics and personalities that made New York what it is, and throws up some utterly fascinating facts in the process. I'd recommend this to anyone who ever looked up and marvelled at the New York skyline.
