Physical Description

xvi, 862 p. ; 24 cm.


The intertwining fates of characters rich and poor, black and white, native born and immigrant, bring to life the momentous events that shaped New York City and America: the Revolutionary War, the emergence of the city as a great trading and financial center, the excesses of the Gilded Age, the explosion of immigration in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the trials of World War II, the near-demise of New York in the 1970s and its roaring rebirth in the '90s, and the attacks on the World Trade Center.
