Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's designed for immigrants but The New York Times Guide for Immigrants to New York City is a rich source of information even for the native, born and bred. This is a book I would place in every school in the city, perhaps on every desk in every school. It is a lesson in civics, practical and precise. The wonder is that such a book took so long in coming. I wish someone had placed something like this in my hands when I first landed in New York."

—Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes
