Inside the Apple

by on Aug.24, 2010, under What I'm reading

For the most part, this book outlines the relevant aspects of New York City history. In short and condensed chapters of one or two pages, the reader is given the background on The Big Apple in a humorous way and in chronological order from the days of New Amsterdam to the post 9/11 era. While not all stories are of interest, the general setup of the book makes it easy to simply skip forward (and back, as the book references in between chapters). A very interesting book for both the first-time tourist and for the native New Yorker. If you’re visiting New York anytime soon this book is a must.
