Experience the mosaic of mid-century Manhattan in this exuberant oral history. This is a snapshot of a time when ocean liners regularly docked in the Hudson River ports, Checker cabs hurtled across a two-way Fifth Avenue, and the Third Avenue El cast long shadows onto the street below. Includes interviews with Jimmy Breslin, Bill Gallo, Elaine Kaufman, Hilton Kramer, Robert Merrill, Saul Zabar, and many others.
