Frazier makes us fall in love with America's greatest city all over again just the way he did
In the early 1970s, the writer Ian Frazier left a small town in Ohio to move to a loft in lower Manhattan. 'Gone To New York' is Frazier's account of the city over the thirty years he's lived there, a book as full of vitality and charm as the city it describes. It features street scenes from every corner of the metropolis, where every block is an event and where the denizens are larger than life. Meet the man who climbed the World Trade Center, learn the location of Manhattan's antipodes, and follow Frazier down Canal Street in the mid 1970s, to Brooklyn in the 1980s and aboard the F train just last year.
