Celebrating 200 Years of New York City as Seen Through the Pages of the 'New York Post'.
Since 1801 the 'New York Post' has been covering New York City with the kind of wit, panache, and "in your face" style that readers have come to expect. Packed with photos, unforgettable headlines, historic news events, spectacular sports stories, infamous scandals, scintillating gossip, political cartoons, Broadway and film reviews and more, this book is as energetic and intriguing as New York itself.
As the oldest continuously published daily paper in the United States, the Post has seen it all and covered it all. Check out the Post's role in creating Central Park and read the famous obituary of Post founder Alexander Hamilton - killed in a duel with Aaron Burr. Vintage ads, anti-slavery editorials, notorious crimes including the Son of Sam murders, the unforgettable blackout, John Lennon's assassination, and the Wall Street crash of 1987.
This is an endlessly fascinating browser's book and a fitting tribute to the greatest city in the world.
