Pete SkinnerGotham is monumental but never overwhelming: It is the work of master literary masons. The narrative is Romanesque in its integrity and solidity of structure but reflects a Gothic precision in its detailing...The authors' clear and supple prose brings clarity and strength to their treatment of these basic themes. Their insertion of key data and supporting citations into clean, fast-moving prose is masterful. This is history with a beating heart; the players command the stage, the documentation lurks in the wings...no reader will leave Gotham disappointed...For individuals with any interest at all in New York City, this book is an unbeatable investment in knowledge and reward.
