Book Description:

"A fascinating, unique introduction to New York City for natives and visitors alike... The authors' anecdotes and descriptions provide readers with an amazing journey through New York City. The bibliography and the two thorough indexes enhance the work; these serve as excellent resources for those who wish to conduct further research about New York City and science... Recommended."


"You, as I, will want to join Istvan and Magdolna Hargittai as they turn their observant and culturally open eyes on the streets of New York. Their research is unmatched - there is even a photograph of the old Stuyvesant H.S. building where I spent many hours. And a bust of Booker T. Washington paired with him on a postage stamp. Even a rare glimpse of the owl secreted in the folds of Columbia's Alma Mater! You will enjoy every richly illustrated page of a wonderful guide to the scientific byways of a great city."
