BOOKS I LIKED
By "the famous norteamerican woman's writer"


WATERFRONT. Phillip Lopate

" As Lopate says, even though Manhattan is an island, its waterfront is under-utilized and, as result, little-known --even by native NYers. His wonderful book explores the mysteries and hidden treasures that surround our 'island' and makes for a fascinating read. Although the book is about the waterfront it really is about SO SUCH MORE --such as the infighting that surrounded the failed Westway project or the sociology of the former Fulton Fish Market (now relocated to The Bronx) or the architecture of Battery Park City.
New York
ers and wannabe-New Yorkers will love this book because it reveals more fascinating city lore. It's more fun than any Circle Line Cruise."
