KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of New York's past in relation to its present and future, not chronologically told, but with aspects of development, focussed on the past decades, and historic developments in their bearing on the present. Here we have a composite of New York's beginnings, its struggles for freedom, the government and those active in it, great men in finance and business, trade and commerce, transit and transportation, intellectual life, city planning. Finally New York's increased importance as the capital of U.N. Interesting, informative, well-written and well-organized.
