Gotham, a history of NYCNov 23 2010

Ever since Meg brought it home one day several years ago, I've wanted to read Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898. But despite the Pulitzer, I never got around to it because the physical book weighs in at 6.1 pounds and 1424 pages. Oof. On a whim the other day, I checked to see if it was available for the Kindle and, lo, here it is. In addition to the much lighter load, the free sample is extremely generous...it's nearly 100 pages and takes you all the way up to the 1680s. Great book so far.
