9780060740627: The New York Chronology: The Ultimate Compendium of Events, People, and Anecdotes from the Dutch to the Present

For a city like no other comes a book like no other. In tens of thousands of chronological entries, The New York Chronology marches year by year through the defining and incidental moments in the great metropolis's history, from the arrival of Giovanni da Verrazano in 1524 to the closing of Ratner's Delicatessen on the Lower East Side "after 97 years of serving blintzes, kasha, latkes, and matzoh brei." With impeccable scholarship, humor, and an astonishing level of detail, here is an entertaining and essential book for New York lovers.
