A Bronx Boy’s Tale, by Jimmy Newell
One of my favourite things to do while I walk around the city is trying to imagine how was like to live in New York in the past; trying to imagine the Fifth Avenue in the 60s or shopping at Macy’s in the 70s or feeling the roaring 80s invading Downtown.
A Bronx Boy’s Tale takes you in a very special place at a very special time, it’s a beautiful account of life that takes you back in time, when life was good and hopes strong.
A splendid book to read!
And if you pay enough attention, you can feel it.. the heart of the city beating! It’s there. It’s always been there.
