It takes you through the history of the Empire State by presenting the stories behind 30 intriguing episodes that took place there. You’ll get inside information on such events as the purchase of Manhattan for just under 24 dollars, the falling of Niagara Falls, and a tightrope walk between the Twin Towers. Authors Fran Capo and Frank Borzellieri write with a comedic yet dramatic flair and an easy-to-read style that will entertain readers as they learn more about the colorful, sometimes wacky, history of New York.
