This is an amazing book as I've been in search of a total pictorial of the city in which i was born. I always wondered what was back in the days and now I know. This is a must have for anyone researching Jersey City in those times.

What a little treasure this book is! I was very impressed with the content. The photography is excellent and the descriptions are precise. Lots of Jersey City history contained in these pages. I was especially happy that the author indicated which buildings are still in existence and that he noted the dates when others were torn down and why. For someone like myself who grew up in Jersey City in the 1950's the book is a companion to old family photos. For anyone researching family history in Jersey City this book gives insight to the life and times of their relatives.
