Greater Gotham: A History of New York City from 1898 to 1919 -  Mike Wallace

I can't believe it -- volume 2 of Mike Wallace's history of New York City is finally coming out!

 

This book has been two decades in the making, and while I'm disappointed that it only goes up to 1919 (which, given Wallace's age, raises the disappointing prospect that he will never cover the whole of the 20th century), if it's even half as good as volume 1 it will be an amazing work in which I will spend many hours immersed.
