This book is simply amazing. Besides the high quality print photos of New York city, the book is full of goodies. Every 20 pages or so you will find pockets inside the book filled with printed bonus materials such as posters, vintage post cards and lots of other cool stuff. The attention to detail that the authors put in this book it's impressive.
If you love New York City and want to know more then you should definitely buy this book. If not, buy the book and you will fall in love with the city!

This is a great book for anyone wanting to know more about this history of the city of New York! The author has written the book in sections both in time order and in sections such as 'sporting life' and 'immigration'.
There are many supporting pictures to go with the text, and what I really enjoyed with the pockets of supporting, photocopied prints of documents such as postcards, immigration certificates and ration cards! These additions really made the book interesting and complemented the text greatly, they also got the younger members of the family interested in the book!
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this book; especially for the price!
