Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The history of New York City is written in its streets; uncover it with Chronicles of Old New York from Museyon Guides. Discover four hundred years of innovation through the true stories of the visionaries, risk takers, dreamers, and schemers who built Manhattan. Witness life during the city's earliest days, when Greenwich Village was a bucolic suburb and disease was a fact of daily life. Explore the city's dark side, from the slums of Five Points to Harlem's Prohibition-era speakeasies, and find out which park covers a sea of unmarked graves. Then see it all for yourself with guided walking tours of each of Manhattan's historic neighborhoods, illustrated with color photographs and period maps.

About the Author

A third-generation New Yorker, James Roman has regaled listeners with his chronicles of old New York as a real estate broker and sales manager for 15 years in Manhattan, and as a lecturer at the Real Estate Board of New York and New York University. He served as Editorial Contributor to New York Living magazine for six years, and contributes regularly to publications that document emerging technology. Readers can find him on re-runs of the HBO television series Six Feet Under, a break he attributes more to luck than to acumen.
