In New York takes us through the city of New York through the eyes of a young boy. After touching on a little history, the book takes the reader to various landmarks and points of interest in New York including the Empire State Building, the subway system, Rockefeller Center, and the Statue of Liberty. Weaved in are facts about the city. ( )

Great book that got me to remember the time I had spent in the big apple. The pictures are so vivid and if you have ever been to New York you would be taken back right away. I liked all the bits of information that were added at the beginning and end of the book. Overall just a great homage to the biggest and some might say best city in America. ( )

This is a wonderful book that is filled with colorful illustrations. New York comes to life through this book. The narrator, describes New York from the time it was known as New Amsterdam to the present. This books allows the reader to travel to the Big Apple. He describes the museums, transportation, people, and other points of interest. I loved the back of the book, where a list is given of all the different places you can visit, along with the physical addresses. I would recommend this book to students in grades first-third. ( )

Marc Brown now calls New York City home, and with In New York, he shares his love for all that the city has to offer and all that it stands for, including the way it's always changing and evolving. From its earliest days as New Amsterdam to the contemporary wonders of Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building, to the kid-appealing subway, High Line, and so much more, Marc's rollicking text and gorgeous illustrations showcase what he's come to adore about New York after fulfilling his life-long dream to live in the city he fell in love with during a childhood visit. 

This is at once a personal story from a beloved children's book creator, a useful primer for first-time travelers on what to see and do with kids in the Big Apple, and a perfect keepsake after a visit. It's also a great gift for anyone who loves New York, the Crossroads of the World. New York! New York! It's a heckuva town!
