Format: Hardcover
Ack, this book is dull. It is very thorough, excellent research, meticulous detail on the subject. But the subject is deadly boring. It is about New York City's desire and complications in building the sewers in the nineteenth century. It talks of political leaders, complications in getting the sewers contructed, what kind of pipe was most effective and on and on and on. It is a quick read though and easy to understand.
