Description

Clifford Browder?s New Yorkers is the quirky memoir of a longtime resident who loves his city, a selective glance at that city?s amazing history, and a bit of a travel book, all rolled into one. It?s for people who love (or hate) the city, and people who live there, and people who have visited or want to visit it. Readers will learn:

 

? Who New Yorkers are and how they live and die

? How many languages are spoken there (you?d be surprised)

? How many witches there are (you?d be surprised)

? Whose funeral caused an all-day riot

? Why a cemetery offers trolley-car tours and whiskey tastings

? Which flashy modern hotel would-be suicides should avoid at all costs, and why

? How the author learned the Charleston on YouTube, proof that geezers rock

 

New York is the most exciting city in the world. Everyone should know it, at least a little. It?s unique.
