If you're familiar with New York City, you'll recognize what a truly impressive job Berger's done profiling changes in several neighborhoods over the past generation. If not, his portayals of life outside the more touristy areas should give an appreciation of how diverse life there can be. At first, I was tempted to skip around with the order in which I read the essays; however, it became clear that they've been arranged as they are so that the parts make a well-put-together whole. Highly recommended.
