Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 243 x 199 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For a city like no other comes a book like no other. The New York Chronology tells the epic story of how a remote trading outpost and fishing village grew into the world s capital as we know it today. In tens of thousands of chronological entries, James Trager marches year by year through both the defining and incidental moments in the city s history, from the arrival of Florentine navigator Giovanni da Verrazano in 1524 to the sad closing of Ratner s Delicatessen on the Lower East Side after 97 years of serving blintzes, kasha, latkes, and matzoh brei. With impeccable scholarship, humor, and an astonishing level of detail, Trager s information-packed entries straddle 32 separate categories that define this great metropolis. Turn to any year and you ll get a vivid sense of what life was like for New Yorkers at that time -- the political and financial developments that shaped their lives; the books, magazines, and newspapers they read; the restaurants, nightclubs, shows, and sporting events that entertained them; the fitful progress of their neighborhoods, schools, hospitals, public works, transportation systems, and so much more. Of course, New Yorkers themselves hold center stage, and The New York Chronology is loaded with eye-opening and colorful stories about its famous, infamous, and long-forgotten inhabitants. From society events and publicity stunts to scandals and murders, here are scores of offbeat tidbits that you simply won t find in a more conventional history. Handsomely illustrated with more than 130 photographs and drawings, it is an entertainingand essential book for New York lovers -- a homage as grand as the city itself.
