Wonderful companion to peruse either before or after a visit to New York City. It brings the landmarks in up close and personal connection to the places you visit. As a real estate agent, I was interested in the real estate deal by Peter Minuit for the island Manna-Hattan. East River, Grand central Statio, Central Park, Elle Island, all of theses landmarks became more real to me. The photographs and text were enlightening and intriguing. A must read for visitors to the "greatest city on Earth".
