-Journal of American History,
"Lankevich has done the near-impossible and packed almost four centuries of New York City into one slim history . . . a deft survey."
-New York History,
"Here, as in New York itself, may be found everything and everyone, from the first inept Dutch leader, William Verhulst, to the number of saloons in 1820, to the budget debacles of the 1970s."
