MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is well coordinated by the author...highly recommended for academic, public, and special (fine arts or entertainment) libraries and for other institutions. * American Reference Books Annual *
Because New York City, that larger-than-life microcosm of the entire country, permeates American popular culture on multiple levels, public and academic libraries from coast to coast need this dictionary. * Rettig On Reference *
...presents an intriguing and often surprising look at the history and personality of the quintessential modern city. * AB Bookman's Weekly *
