Clifford Browder’s New Yorkers is the quirky memoir of a longtime resident who loves his city, a selective glance at that city’s amazing history, and a bit of a travel book, all rolled into one. It’s for people who love (or hate) the city, and people who have visited or want to visit it. Readers will learn:
• Who New Yorkers are and how they live and die
• How many languages are spoken there (you’d be surprised)
• How many witches there are (you’d be surprised)
• Whose funeral caused an all-day riot
• Why a cemetery offers trolley-car tours and whiskey tastings
• Which flashy modern hotel would-be suicides should avoid at all costs, and why
• How the author learned the Charleston on YouTube, proof that geezers rock
New York is the most exciting city in the world. Everyone should know it, at least a little. It’s unique.
