Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America by Sam Roberts sheds light on how this grand train station changed New York forever, not only shifting the pulse of the city to midtown but also how the suburbs grew around the city. The author also includes the myths and legends of the secret tunnels and more. Public Sculpture and the Civic Ideal in New York City 1890-1930 by Michele H. Bogart could not be any more timely. This book traces the thought and deliberation behind public monuments, and discusses both the support and disdain surrounding many of the pieces at the time of their inception. Greater Gotham: A History of New York from 1898-1919 by Mike Wallace gives the reader a detailed look through the years when New York grew from national to global prominence. Driven by ambition, immigrant dreams, and Wall Street capital, New York went on to control the country's cultural and commercial life and by the end of World War I and had overtaken London as the financial center of the world. During these two decades, the city not only grew in power, but it also underwent an economic and social growth with the development of large hotels, department stores, movie theatres, and the like. This book also discusses the birth of the Burroughs, the growth of Harlem, and the plight of the Lower East Side. No stone is left unturned in this mammoth text.
