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 even been to New York you would be taken back right away. I liked all the bits of information that was 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. ( )

Every New Yorker will love this book, but many people who never have or never will travel there can learn so much about the city that it's worth anyone's adding this title to the library. So many books are set in New York; what a great companion this would be to look at alongside a novel set in the city.
Wonderful end papers show various city sites. After a one-page intro from Brown regarding his first visit to the city and another one-page commentary on New Amsterdam and what New York was at its very beginning, he then explores all the things that New York is famous for, giving facts that would engage the k-3 reader. It is indeed an homage from Brown to a city he loves. This could serve to invite a class to create an homage to their city or town. ( )

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!
