Review quote

Booklist[I]n this magnificently illustrated work, historical happenings and intriguing offshoots are showcased like stars on Broadway. This volume of the Through Time series does what the other volumes have done so well: present historical events and daily life in painstakingly illustrated double-page spreads, each one devoted to one year or one signal event. . . . A wealth of information in an engaging format. Kirkus ReviewsThe large trim size, cutaways of Ellis Island and other landmarks and intricate aerial views of Manhattan in the Through Time series entry capture a sense of scale and bustling energy of "the city that never sleeps." School Library JournalWhile the initial impression is that this is a browsing book, it is in reality more of a research tool, reliant on text to explain the famous city's metamorphosis. Asbury Park PressOpen the really big cover to reveal the really big pages, and you'll find a really fascinating, magically illustrated book that illuminates the Big Red Delicious.show more
