Review:

"Naomi Fertitta's "New York: The Big City and Its Little Neighborhoods" (Universe, $25), provides surprising, delightful and practical insights into the people, sights, food and shopping found in the city's ethnic communities — a must read for New Yorkers and visitors alike." ~The New York Times

"The title says it all. Fertitta and Aresu take the intimidation factor out of New York by zeroing in on small neighborhoods and their charms. There are few better examples of the "melting pot" cliche of the great city than the book's overview of nearly two dozen ethnic enclaves,...I can tell that this book will get quite a work out from me over the next few months." ~CTNews.com

"[The] colorful juxtaposition of faces, foods, and architecture is a bracing reminder of the city’s diversity." ~New York Times Book Review
