Every establishment in this book has been in business for at least 100 years, so it is a good guide for finding history in NYC. While it's only about 6 inches tall, it's 350 thick-stock pages that cover specialty foods, clothing, books, saloons and wine shops, jewelers, toy shops, steak houses... It's surprising to see that Lane Bryant is over 100 years old, or that you can buy kangaroo meat, if you know where to go. What's missing, and it's a big void in a book like this, are pictures. There are none, which is why I had to rate it as I did. ( )
