City Notebook:
A Reporter’s Portrait of a Vanishing New York

By McCandlish Phillips

If you open this book up and read, you will learn about “Mama” and “The Truck That Came to Dinner,” as well as about “Times Square After Hours.” You will also hear what went on between “The Magistrate and the Parrot” and what happened “The Day the Wall Went Down.” You will learn the secrets of blood and jazz and Book Row and read pen portraits of “Mr. Quickfingers,” “The Last of the Red Hot Principals,” and “The Man from I.Q.H.Q.” The mystery of who is buried in Grant’s Tomb will be solved, and “The Secret Hodgepodge” will be revealed. It that isn’t enough, you can witness a “Storm Rescue at False Hook or relive “The Night They Clobbered Lindy’s.” There is nothing here but “A Winter Walk” that is not New York and everything here is a special pleasure to read—and read again.
