Must Read

As part of my preparation for this trip I’m working my way through a couple of American history books. I have to recommend “The Island at the Center of the World” to all New Yorkers, Dutch nationals and anyone who has so much as a passing interest in New York. A factual narrative of the founding colonists early impact on this great city, which intertwines with personal, social and European perspectives. This is the first historical page-turner I’ve ever read.
