My Review: 
If you are a visual learner this is the perfect historical guide for you. The artwork and photographs in this book are phenomenal.  The brief history and captions that accompany each picture are easy to follow and highly informative.  This would be a wonderful addition to any history class, I know if my textbooks had looked this amazing I may have learned more. Sasha Vosk does an excellent job in showing New York as it was 400 years ago.
