Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0578017059, Paperback)

You know our landmarks. This book highlights the people involved, the emotions and events that drove them. In some cases, it is circumstance or chance; others involve ego, poverty, revenge, or simply ability to see the future and the genius to create it... A poor farm boy who began a simple ferry boat service, and became a millionaire A renowned bridge-builder whose work on a statue would change his life A newspaper man who seized an opportunity A man whose building forced our skyline upward These are some of the Tales of New York.
