Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on June 30, 1998
Format: Hardcover
Most of this material can be found in more detailed books with more pages, and at a much lower price. It is hard to determine what the focus of the book is. It starts out a history and ends up as a statistical list of urban changes, listed in a dry style. There is little to no mention of groups such as gay men and lesbians, who have played a huge part in shaping New York City in this century.
