Rezension: Did you know that the Bowery was named after the Dutch word for "farm," that it was the path the Algonquin tribe used to visit their Dutch neighbors, that it served as Peter Stuyvesant's farm-to-office commute from 1647 to 1664, that it was part of the royal highway to New England in 1776, that it was the site of the first stage production of Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1852, and that Stephen Foster lived there in a 20-cent-a-night flophouse in 1864? Did you know that Dodger fans called themselves the Flatbush Faithful, that the Statue of Liberty's iron framework was built by the same engineer who constructed the Eiffel Tower, that wolves roamed the New York streets until 1687, and that the Hemlock Grove in the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is all that remains of the city's original forest?
With more than 1,000 items of trivia, divvied up into chapters on "Geography," "Entertainment," "History," "Art & Literature," "Sports & Leisure," and "Science & Nature," The Ultimate New York City Trivia is entertaining, educational, and a great way to soak up the hours en route to a Big Apple visit. A great browsing book, it's especially useful for keeping the kids occupied on long flights and car trips, and it's handy in the city, too, with its priceless four-page list of where to go (as in "to the toilet") in New York. --Stephanie Gold
