The Colossus of New York by Colson Whitehead

  • Dec 18, 2003
The author begins the book by defining a New Yorker in the
context of reminiscing scenes and occurrences deep in the
past- perhaps 20 years ago or 30 years ago or more. Centenarians
can think back almost 100 years to how the city was at the turn

the underground subway, Broadway, Coney Island, billboards,
restaurants, famous museums and historic sports events. The
"true grit" New Yorkers can recant the hustle and bustle of the
rush hour and the beauty of Times Square at night-particularly
New Year's Eve.This work is perfect for every reader interested
in the history of New York City and the details of historic
landmarks and milestones.
