Overview

This is a book filled entirely with stories about New Yorkers - some real, some imagined - who have passed through the author's life. Among them are:
A professional basketball player who decides to play his last game stark naked.
A moral philosopher who must resolve his own moral dilemma.
Two homeless veterans living in a subway tunnel, who get hit by a train - and live to tell about it.
A young man on a crowded subway train, who believes a beautiful young woman keeps looking at him.
A kindergarten class that sets out on an adventure to raise money for the homeless.
A young woman who took the hands off the clock in Grand Central Station.
Professors who formulated brilliant strategies to avoid teaching.
How an old high school classmate helped Bernie Sanders become president.
Some stories will make you laugh, some might make you teary-eyed, but they will all entertain and give the reader a unique flavor and insight into growing up a New Yorker.
