Too often, tours of New York City are paeans to power-extolling the fabled New York skyline and the robber barrons whose wealth built it up, praising the marvels of a city built largely on finance. But New York has also, since its founding, been a city of struggle, a place where workers lived, created wealth, and spun out the rich cultural tapestry that has put the small island of Manhattan at the very center of the world's imagination. It is a city of proletarian uprising, of abolitionist rebellion, of civil rights demonstrations, and radical futures.

As a tour guide, I find this book as an invaluable commodity and incorporate many of its points of interest into my own tours.

This is a guidebook with a hard left political point of view on absolutely everything (as in communist or anarchist, not liberal). Not to be alarmed, however. My evaluation of the book is especially for those, like me, who do NOT share these views. Rather than off-putting, I found Kayton's historical comments to be concise, virtually always intersting, and highly relevant to an appreciation of the neighborhoods in question. The Greenwhich Village walk, for ecample, focuses on sites that have been the homes of famous leftists (John Reed, Emma Goldman, the Rosenbergs), left-leaning writers (Edna St. Vincent Millay), alleged bad guy capitalists (Mayor Jimmy Walker, Mayor Ed Koch), as well as important places in the history of labor (the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire), abolitionism, civil rights, gay rights (the Stonewall Inn demonstrations), and anti-war protest. The slice of New York history that these places represent comes alive from a perspective that resembles the participants'. Finally, Kayton's humor and energy more than outweigh the silliness of some of his views. I recommend it if you're looking for something different.

I wanted more information on the events and places than he provided. No doubt that Mr. Kayton is a terrific tour guide and NYC needs more scholarly guides; the typical guide in this great city is HORRENDOUSLY inept and ignorant. Other parts of the city, aside from the Lower East Side and Villages should have been covered - I can't imagine that no radical never called Murray Hill, Times Square, Turtle Bay, etc., home.

This is a great book. I have not read it yet but read the extensive excerpt on the link from Curbed NY's blog just now. The photos are wonderful, from what I have seen and I regret I can only afford the Kindle edition.But I am gonna buy a new Kindle Paperwhite so I can see them better. My original Kindle is good for text but not so good on photos and I need a night light. This guy really did his homework. I am only talking about St. Mark's Place and the East Village. I realize he covers other neighborhoods as well.
Buy it. If you are really rich and appreciate this plug buy me the only new paper edition for ninety bucks as a birthday present.
It's not my birthday but…… WTFN(let's see if I can get THAT past the Amazon censors. They really did not like my review of the two star review on this page. _

Great essential history about some of the most important radicals in NYC's history. Bruce Kayton is a great guy. I don't think he's doing the tours any longer but I wish he was.
