KIRKUS REVIEW

A full and running over panorama of the city in its last hundred years portrays it in all its glamor -- and sometimes shame. There are scandals, and skylines, there is the development as a metropolis, and the development of changing real estate; there is government and corruption as well as styles and society; there is color and drabness -- and crime and punishment -- and there are individual citizens along with special events. A history that catches the vitality and the allure, that bustles along at the same rate that its traffic does, that in sketching the broad picture fills in with the little neighborhoods, the parks and local anecdotes. A whopper of a book -- a whopper of a city, this should be newsworthy and attention-getting in its own back yard.
