About this title:

Synopsis: This second edition digs more deeply into the question of what the village of Yorkville was and who its people were. Who were its leaders? Why did it start? And also the issue of slavery in our city and the major role it played in its development, including the area that eventually became Yorkville and the often neglected role of the area during the revolutionary war, except, perhaps, to scholars. The introduction to this edition is written by two Yorkville alumni, John and Joseph Gindele, PhDs, DITs. They are the coauthors of "Yorkville Twins" an engrossing book of the life and times of two twin brothers growing up in Yorkville in the 1940s and 50s. For anyone interested in the history of New York City, this book makes the ongoing connection between the history of the city as a whole and its continuing impact on the area that would become Yorkville. In the process, in sites other areas of the city as well, including Lenox Hill, Harlem, Hellgate Seneca, and others. It is a must-read for any historian interested in the city of New York.

About the Author: Mr. Lofaso's grandfather, Antonino DiSclafani, settled in Yorkville in March of 1900. His mother, Rose DiSclafani, was born in Yorkville in 1911 on the top floor of 361 E 76 Street. More than anyone, his mother inspired Anthony's interest in all that had gone before. His father, Charles Lofaso, moved to Yorkville from Elizabeth Street in 1926. Mr. Lofaso's parents were married in Yorkville in 1932. His brother, Joseph, was born in Yorkville. Anthony Lofaso was born in Yorkville on its main street, 86th Street, in the long-gone Misericordia Hospital. He was educated in Yorkville's schools, played in its streets, and married a woman from Yorkville. Mr. Lofaso and his brother, Joseph, are third generation Yorkville. As a teenager in the 1950s riding the "El" just two stops to Yorkville Junior High, he would think of how it all came to be. When were the elevated trains built? When were the old wooden houses that were still around in the 1940s and 1950s built? And who built them? His curiosity about the city and especially his neighborhood got the best of him as a teenager, and he began his search. By 1971, he put it all together, The History of the Village of Yorkville in the City of New York. The book lay dormant for many years until his opportunity to publish with Xlibris in 2010. Mr. Lofaso worked more than thirty years for the New York City Department of Sanitation, starting as a sanitation worker and, over the years, rising through the ranks to retire as a city wide chief of the department in the Office of the Deputy Commissioner for Operations. Mr. Lofaso attended Queens College and is a graduate of the Top 40 program of the City of New York, a graduate course for executives in municipal government.
