About the Author

George J. Lankevich has written more than thirty books, has contributed many articles to The Encyclopedia of New York City, and is the author of Postcards from Times Square, Postcards from Manhattan, and New York City: A Short History (NYU Press). Professor emeritus of history at Bronx Community College, he lives in Manhasset, New York.


"Here, as in New York itself, may be found everything and everyone, from the first inept Dutch leader, William Verhulst, to the number of saloons in 1820, to the budget debacles of the 1970s."--The New York Times Book Review. "Lankevich has done the near-impossible and packed almost four centuries of New York City into one slim history ... a deft survey." --New York History "A splendid work of history that expands our understanding and appreciation of New York City ... a concise, clear, and meaningful guidebook covering New York's long past."--Journal of American History
