Riassunto: The Firefighter's Guide to Old New York presents the full pageant of the city, from its founding as a Dutch colony through its emergence as the great metropolis of 20th century America. Lavishly illustrated and lovingly-researched, this comprehensive over-sized book, printed on acid-free paper, focuses special attention on New York City's proud firefighting heritage. Yet it is also richly informative about every aspect of life on the island of Manhattan.
The Firefighter's Guide to Old New York, with nearly three dozen maps and well-over 100 illustrations, is an indispensable guide to the remarkably textured history of the city. Whether seraching for information about a particular location or landmark, or for a broader view of Manhattan, the reader will not be disappointed.
Measuring 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches, printed on the highest-quality acid-free paper, with extremely high quality binding for durability, this book was designed to last generations.
About the Author: Kenneth H. Dunshee devoted decades to the study of New York City and its firefighting heritage.
