I've lived in New York for several years now and know the very basics of the city's history, but I would love to learn more. I'm especially interested in specifics - the history of particular buildings or streets or neighborhoods. The time period doesn't especially matter. Could you recommend books, films, or possibly websites for me to investigate? Straight history would be great, but evocative fiction is also welcome.
