A nice slice of the Big Apple, though perhaps not enough to eat,

This review is from: My First New York: Early Adventures in the Big City (As Remembered by Actors, Artists, Athletes, Chefs, Comedians, Filmmakers, Mayors, Models, Moguls, Porn Stars, Rockers, Writers, and Others (Hardcover)
I read most of these pieces when they first appeared as a New York magazine cover story in 2009. While it IS a good little compilation worth keeping, they should have included even more people than they did. This final product feels a bit lacking to me, considering I have the issue a lot of these were first published in. Some of the stories are very well written and thoughtful, but others are obviously phoned-in or fall flat. The concept is great though, and it would make a nice gift, especially for someone moving to or new in NYC.
