It’s always interesting to read a book about the place where you live…it gives you the chance to walk through the history and learn about the past… well…what I noticed is that, now the City looks a bit different…:-) Why don’t you try?
Few lines from the book “Downtown” of Pete Hamill…
“If they are lucky, the new immigrants will get to know New York the way so many others did, long ago. They will discovere that the easiest way to know this place is to start at the beginning. That is, to go on foot to Downtown. They will walk its streets. They wil recognize its ruins and monuments. They will inhale the dust of the past. They will celebrate living in a place that is filled with people who are not, on the surface, like them. They will stroll with their children across Brooklyn Bridge and see the spires of Oz gilded by morning sun…..”
