"Gracefully written and full of surprising insights, Rosenblum's book is a tribute to the capacity of New Yorkers to create entire worlds in the smallest of places: their apartments."
—Ariel Sabar, author of Heart of the City
"For anyone who has ever loved a great street or neighborhood as change after change swept over it and dreams and challenges
converged...It’s a rich, sometimes wild ride through a century of history, beautifully written by a gifted observer."
—Tony Hiss, author of The Experience of Place
