Overview

Ever since Henry Hudson first navigated the river that now bears his name, New York has been one of the most influential and celebrated regions of the United States. And what better way to honor America’s premier city than to devote an entire Bathroom Reader to the cause? So the folks at the Bathroom Readers’ Institute put on their tinfoil thinking caps, corralled a group of savvy New York writers, and put together this compendium of all that’s great about the Big Apple and the Empire State. Take a look at some of what’s inside: Ellis Island, the Underground Railroad in Syracuse, and other gateways to freedom; how New Jersey lost Staten Island; Thomas Edison: elephant executioner; the history of Harlem, the origin of Steinway Village in Queens, and the extraordinary evolution of the Bronx River; incredible finds . . . in the city’s sewers; the alien hunters of Pine Bush; and much more!
