Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ellis's 1966 volume chronicles several centuries of New York City history. The story covers everything from riots, scandals, and dirty politics to the construction of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and first skyscraper to the plan to build Manhattan into the world's greatest city. Epic indeed. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
