Manhattan Street Names Past and Present by Don Rogerson

A guide to the origins of current and historic street names of Manhattan.
Do you know where to find Oyster Pasty Alley, Dirty Lane, or the Golden Hill? Ever wonder about the men and women (and sometimes children) whose names now adorn Manhattan's streets?
Over 1,000 cross-referenced entries trace the history of Manhattan's street names and reflect the growth of the city. Illustrations show the locations of historic streets and some of the street plans that were never officially adopted. Notes and a full bibliography provide a wealth of information for further exploration. An entertaining guide and useful reference for visitors, residents, and anyone interested in the fascinating history of Manhattan.
