The Timeline History of New York City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York City is more than just a city and The Timeline History of New York City is more than just a book. It's a hands-on presentation of New York's history. It features:

* a 14 ft. timeline that folds out to show the history of NY since the early 16th century

* fold-out, hand painted maps of the waterways around NY

* the history of each of the city's five boroughs

* maps and histories of each of Manhattan's distinctive neighborhoods: SoHo, Chelsea, the Upper West Side, the Upper East Side, Midtown, etc.

* a history of the theater district, Museum Mile and the subway system

* a fold-out map of Central Park that shows its history

* a cut-out wheel that that turns to present important facts for 100 of the city's most distinctive and tallest buildings

* color illustrations throughout.

This is the perfect gift book for anyone visiting the city and a perfect gift for anyone who's ever been amazed by "the city that never sleeps." It's a Valentine to New York, New York.

Synopsis:

New York City's fascinating history unfolds brilliantly in a book that includes 2,000 facts and dates on a timeline over fourteen feet long!
