My parents, younger brothers, and I all love New York City history, and to get some parental attention I had to be historically correct and entertaining at the same time. "I love this city and all its peculiarities, and I love sharing it with newcomers, returning visitors or native New Yorkers— I'll tell you these and other fascinating things you never knew about this amazing place I call home because 'there are 8 million stories in the naked city' and I will share with you as many as possible."
