Review:

"The subtitle to The Bowery Boys sets high expectations... Happily, they are met by Greg Young and Tom Meyers, transplants from the Midwest." ―Sam Roberts,The New York TImes

“Meyers and Young have become unofficial ambassadors of New York City history.” ―NPR

“Delightfully old-fashioned without feeling recondite.” ―The Observer

“Breezy and informative, crowded with the finest grifters, knickerbockers, spiritualists, and city-builders to stalk these streets since back when New Amsterdam was just some farms.” ―Village Voice

“The Bowery Boys weave stories on everything from Dutch forts to Gilded Age mansions, and provide opportunities to relook at familiar landmarks like Grand Central and Times Square.” ―City Guide NY

“Young and Meyers have an all-consuming curiosity to work out what happened in their city in years past, including the Newsboys Strike of 1899, the history of the Staten Island Ferry, and the real-life sites on which Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl is based.” ―The Guardian
