Kimley I love this book! Though I do have a thing for old seedy New York history. I highly recommend reading this along with Edith Wharton and you'll have a really great sense of both sides of turn-of-the-century NY. This is a well-researched, fascinating read and Luc Sante is an excellent writer.

I think you said you grew up in NY, right? This book is even more fun when you know exactly the places he's referring to that used to be whore houses and gang territories etc.
