A revised and expanded edition of the landmark, ravishing history of New York City—the companion volume to the acclaimed PBS series—that begins in 1624 and brings its 400-year-long story up to the current moment.

This edition includes two new chapters that cover the aftermath of 9/11, the continual struggle with racial injustice, the financial crisis of 2008, the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, and the still unfolding cataclysm of the COVID-19 pandemic. New material also includes a lively portrait of the city’s vibrant street life and culture: the birth of hip-hop in the South Bronx, Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Gates in Central Park, the celebrated Broadway musicals and songs, the explosion in location filmmaking, the pivotal rise of the tech industry, and more. Hardcover, 848 pages, over 600 illustrations and photos throughout.
