A compelling read from beginning (pre-Henry Hudson) to end (the aftermath of the World Trade Center attack), "Inside the Apple" is a splendid book. Each of the 182 chapters is focused on a specific place, which quite literally grounds the narrative in the here and now. If you are at home, you can read the book from cover to cover and it provides an excellent overview of the city's history; if you are in New York, you can grab it and go visit the places. It doesn't need to be read in order, you can just find yourself walking down the street, look up a place in the index, and read a page or two about its history and significance. Highly recommended.

Out of all the other New York City history books I have read, this one tops out all of them by a ton! It starts at the beggining of the glacier retreat and ends at the aftermath of September 11.(some 182 chapters later) It is rich in detail and is very good!!
