Mr. Epstein was not oblivious at all. For anyone who grew up in Washington Heights in the same era, the details he includes are much appreciated, both to fill in those missed, and to be reminded of ones forgotten. A great nostalgia hit! I really enjoyed this book.

Terrific so far (I'm still only in the middle of the first chapter). I grew up in the author's building, on the author's floor, about 5 years after he did. Wonderful, personal memories of a great neighborhood--"in the Heights"--at a great time.

The candy stores, egg cream sodas, the little red lighthouse...they're all here in this loving recollection of a beautiful but fading old neighborhood. Thank you for bringing it back! This book was a labor of love, and it shows.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Guarina on May 11, 2012
Format: Paperback
The author is self-absorbed, jealous of his older brother, didn't appreciate his mother much, thinks he was best at everything, "terribly adorable", describes the sports and street games in too much detail, is biased against the people living to the east of Broadway, says "Two Jews, two Greeks and everybody else". I lived in Washington Heights in my teens and there was a lot more to it than his little world.
