Publisher Comments:

In Downtown, Pete Hamill leads us on an unforgettable journey through the city he loves, from the island's southern tip to Times Square, combining a moving memoir of his days and nights in New York with a passionate history of its most enduring places and people.

In the tradition of E. B. White's Here Is New York, this will be a timeless evocation of the city, ideal for lovers of New York everywhere.

More than just history or reporting, this is an elegy by a native son who haslived through some of New York's most historic moments, and continues to call this magnificent, haunted city his home.
