CAROL J. BINKOWSKI is a pianist and organist. She is the staff organist at the Church Center for the United Nations in New York and is the co-author of I Hear America Singing.From Library Journal:
Binkowski, an organist, LJ reviewer, and the coauthor of I Hear America Singing (Crown, 1989), provides a treasure trove for music lovers. Her subtitle says it all, and illustrations add depth to the many possible tours this book could inspire. The first section presents an informative history of musical activity in New York from Colonial times to the present, followed by a travelog organized by borough to aid those wishing to visit the various sites or monuments mentioned. Each entry includes a full explanation of the site as well as a phone number. Most of the sites could be compiled from the New York phone directory, but having the information neatly gathered and detailed in pleasant prose makes this a wonderful and inexpensive title for libraries serving music lovers, students, travelers, or anyone interested in the history of music in the Big Apple.?Scott Johnson, Whittemore Park Middle Sch., Conway, SC
