Postcards from Manhattan book. Arranged by region, over 150 beautiful postcards show the evolution of seven distinct areas of the city: the tip of Manhattan, lower Manhattan, Midtown, the East Side, the West Side, upper Manhattan, and Central Park. You'll visit lost New York, where magnificent hotels like the Astor pampered the rich and famous. You'll see the changing face of landmarks like Pennsylvania Station and Madison Square Garden. And you'll view sights that continue to attract visitors today-the towering Empire State building, legendary Tavern on the Green, and beautiful Central Park.

Postcards from Manhattan : Sights and Sentiments from the Last Century. by George L.

George J. Lankevich has chosen 64 postcards-most from the first half of the 20th century-to chronicle the changing landscape of the Hudson Valley. North from the gritty riverfront factories of Yonkers, past the towering bluffs of the Palisades, we travel upstream, stopping to sample the remarkable variety of the river’s changing course. From its crystal headwaters at Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondack Mountains to its majestic embrace by the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of New York Bay, the Hudson River is not only one of America’s greatest waterways. The river and its valley are among America’s greatest treasures-home to unrivaled natural beauty and a rich historic legacy that lives on in the great cities and small towns that line its shores. In this fascinating book, a leading historian takes us on a different kind of journey up the Hudson.

Author: George J. Each book is designed to bring alive not only the sights of the last century, but also the sentiments―whether those of a young actress telling her family that she’s landed a job with Rudy Vallee’s revue, or of an army corporal letting his friend know that he’ll be discharged by Christmas 1941. Perfect as mementos, pictorial histories, and gifts, the Postcards From. Series transports you back in time, allowing you to explore the events, places, and people that have enriched our country and our culture. 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. If you are looking for a thorough and well-organized history of New York City this book will suit your needs. Sure, it may not be as detailed as "Gotham" but most of us will not want that level of depth. This book is wisely broken into sections that mirror the terms of the various governors and mayors of the Big Apple-and, really, why wouldn't that be the best way to present this story.
