    Wrong, repetitive, and worse

    This book's goal is admirable to anyone who loves the city subway - visit every station and describe it for all to know. However, Dave Frattini, makes a pretty bad job of it. While his effort is admirable, his information as duly noted by others is often plain wrong. His style could use some work too - how many times can one write 'let's face it' in one publication?? Furthermore he includes completley unnecessary racial comments into the descriptions: why 'scary black guy'??(p.180) Why shouldn't residents of Ralph Avenue watch a TV sitcom with white characters?(p.37) Van Siclen Avenue area is not a shanty town - why should it be surprising to see satelite dishes? (pp.179-180) I can't find such remarks informative or funny. Real people live and work in all these neighborhoods - they have many more positive sides than can be seen from a brief peek from the station entrance - but it seems the author did not really do this much for some of his listings... The book presents New York, New Yorkers and the subway as the same old stereotypes from bad movies of a few decades back. Some one should us all a favor and write a new and better book!

    Good for the restaurants but not the subway information

    Dave Frattini appears to put a lot of effort into this book. The listing of places to eat near the various stations is very informative. However, the some of the historical information on the NYC Subway have considerable errors. This applies to some of the current subway references as well. The author should do some additional homework to subject of NYC Subways.

    ABOUT TIME !!!!

    After seeing the author's witty interview on GOOD DAY NEW YORK !! I decided to give him a read. Boy am i glad I did !! Besides almost falling out of my seat in laughter, I realized that this person is one helluva good story teller, historian and scribe. We need more 'ballsy' authors who tell it like it is -- good or bad
