Ce commentaire est de: Epic Of New York City Pb (Paperback)
Although it is being marketed as if it were a new book, "The Epic of New York City" was written over thirty years ago. The author refers to people using antique adjectives such as Jewesses and redskins. He seems shocked that Greenwich Village attracts men who wear their hair long and women who wear it short. The book is also full of small but annoying errors (e.g.: Mayor LaGuardia was not born on Varick Street). The book has not been updated in any way and misleads the reader - McSorley's Ale House has admitted women since 1966, but the book states that it still is an all male establishment. I would recommend anyone interested in the history of New York to find a more current survey.
