There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There are a number of gaps in coverage, including construction of the Meadowlands complex, and there is nary a word about the extensive network of rail lines criss-crossing the marshes.
The book would benefit enormously from some maps and photographs.
Nice read if somebody lends you the book, but The Meadowlands may not be worth the price of a new hardcover.
