"Manhattan '45" by Jan Morris$45.00
In this book, published in 1986 by Jan Morris, one of the greatest prose stylists of all time, we disembark at Manhattan with the returning GIs, and discover for ouselves how the city was. We ride the vanished trollies,the El, the Hudson River ferry-boats. We meet characters as disparate as Robert Moses, Sherman Billingsley of the Stork Club, painter Jackson Pollock, and Mayor LaGuardia.
In these pages, the victorious, hopeful, confident, celebratory, and explosive Manhattan of nearly seven decades ago finds its spectacular literary apotheosis.
