Reviews

"A writer and editor at the New York Times, Rosenblum is an infectiously enthusiastic tour guide. You can almost feel her pulling you up and down the Grand Concourse-which was completed one hundred years ago-giddily pointing out the sights." - The New York Times Book Review "Rosenblum has written with real thunder about the Grand Concourse and the wild dreamers who once lived there. Boulevard of Dreams is a passionate and deeply elegiac book." - The Wall Street Journal "A seminal recounting of the rise, fall and current revival of a major landmark, this book, with many archival photos and drawings, is a must for those interested in the cultural history of the Bronx and New York City." - Publishers Weekly "Boulevard of Dreams traces the evolution of the area surrounding the Concourse from orchard and farmland to inner-cityscape." - The New Yorker " She takes us through the different generations of immigrants who made Concourse neighborhoods their home, looking at the big picture and the changing details of people's lives." - The New York Post
