From Beatlemania at Shea Stadium to the hoax of the Cardiff Giant, It Happened in New York gives readers a unique look at intriguing people and episodes from the history of the Empire State.

Meet the young Polio Pioneers and Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed, tested, and refined the vaccine that has saved the lives of millions. Discover why a peach provoked a three-day war in Manhattan.
