About this title


New York's continual changes make it one of the world's most fascinating cities. The Dutch began rearranging the landscape as soon as they arrived and every generation since then has dedicated itself to making a good thing better. The Sidewalks of New York takes a fond look at the ways the city has changed since the days of Peter Stuyvesant and it introduces some of the amazing people whose ideas have made a difference over the last three centuries. Through hundreds of rarely seen illustrations, it is a tour of streets and neighborhoods that may in another time have been the last word in the city's style, but have since changed beyond recognition-in many cases more than once. This informal history goes beyond Manhattan into the other boroughs that joined as "Greater New York" a hundred years ago. It describes some of the things that the people there have contributed to the city's story beyond added territory and a boost in population statistics. Most of all, The Sidewalks of New York is the story of people, some of whom you may not have met before, but all of whom you'll enjoy getting to know better. In the process, you are going to discover new things about their legacy: nothing more or less than the greatest city of the world.

About the Author:

After 20 years at The New York Times, Bill Harris devotes his time to writing books. Along with works on subjects ranging from the State of Israel to the State of Pennsylvania, he has produced more than a dozen titles on various aspects of the history of New York City, including the story of The Plaza Hotel and an anthology of well-known writers' commentaries on city life. A licensed tour guide, he has led his fellow New Yorkers on walking tours through almost every Manhattan neighborhood and many in the other boroughs as well. As a founding partner of ViewPoint International, a visitor's service company, he has organized tours and special events to share the New York experience with out-of-town groups as well.
