    As someone who loves fictional New York history, this book did not disappoint. A man gets granted eternal life but can't leave the island of Manhattan, so he sees it change from the 1700s up through September 11th. It's obviously got a mystical element that I loved, but the New York stuff, from native Brooklynite and Daily News writer Pete Hamill, is well researched and super interesting. (Christine)

    Description


    This widely acclaimed bestseller is the magical, epic tale of an extraordinary man who arrives in New York in 1740 and remains... forever.
    Through the eyes of Cormac O'Connor--granted immortality as long as he never leaves the island of Manhattan--we watch New York grow from a tiny settlement on the tip of an untamed wilderness to the thriving metropolis of today. And through Cormac's remarkable adventures in both love and war, we come to know the city's buried secrets--the way it has been shaped by greed, race, and waves of immigration, by the unleashing of enormous human energies, and, above all, by hope.
