Comments about PBS New York: An Illustrated History by Ric Burns - Book (Softcover):

What a wonderfully, descriptive book!The younger generations get a glimpse of what New York was and the respective journey to what it is now.The older generations get to savor the architectural development of the city,since some can remember the growth.And all can be humbled by the amount of immigrants that came for a safe and prosperous haven.
Well done!
