I love all things New York history. I would (always) like to read more—fiction, non, based-on-reality, whatever.
I'm most interested in the time up to about the 1900s, so bonus points if the book's subject is colonial/industrial revolution/civil war/revolutionary war.
Seriously, anything from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to Delirious New York, and a little Edward Rutherford tossed in for good measure. Read them all, loved them all. I don't think you could find too nerdy or granular a subject for me.
Thank you, my friends!
