I read this several years ago and don't remember many (or any) details except the fact that I liked the book a great deal. I think I will reread it one of these days to remind myself why.

Stories from a fascinating (and brutal) time and place - depression era New York City and the fishmongers, drunks, and preachers who populated tenements, taverns and harbors.

Well let me change from day today this book currently is in my top 10 favorite books. Mitchell was a long time reporter for various New York newspapers in later than New York or during the first half of the 1900s. His pieces are wonderful slices of New York history told through various character sketches and regions of New York that has long since disappeared. Each story is a gym starting with McSorley‘s old Ale House and moving onto other colorful characters such as Maisie who ran a movie theater on the lower Eastside waterman fisherman oysterman who worked the docs around New York Harbor and the Fulton fishmarket. He captures since of long last New York through a character Joe Gould described as a true Greenwich Village bohemian. Highly recommend.… (mais)
