"Television and theater producer/quiz master Winn (I Never Knew That About London) does an excellent job of cataloging the sights and stories of hundreds of years with just enough detail to spark curiosity... tthe delicate and detailed illustrations by his wife, Mai Osawa, lighten the mood and keep the book flowing smoothly from Battery Park to the Cloisters."—Library Journal
