N jacket. Light handling() It's just a narrow island, only 22 square miles. But it's so much bigger than that. Now, in this album of period photos and first-person reminiscences, readers can experience the mosaic of midcentury Manhattan from Altman's to Zabar's. Ranging from the post-World War II years when the city came into its own to the mid-1970s when the city nearly went bust, this book features interviews with such New York luminaries as Jimmy Breslin, Bill Gallo, Monte Irvin, Robert Merrill, Herma.
