A new title in Reaktion's innovative CityScopes series, New York traces the development of the city from a Dutch trading post into a world leader in business, media and the arts today. New York mixes history with high and low culture to make a Manhattan cocktail both enjoyable and practical, for the armchair traveller and true tourist alike. It traces the development of the city from a Dutch trading post to one of the world capitals of business, media and the arts, introducing readers to the city's most important - and colourful - dramatis personae along the way. A history of the five boroughs is followed by a series of ruminations on New York today - the city's natural landmarks, unnatural gin joints, immigrant enclaves and even its noises - providing thoughtful, eclectic lists of where to eat, drink and shop, and what to see, hear and do.
