I want to sincerely thank The New York Municipal Archives for trusting me with these historic photos and my constant requests for additional information and guidance. In particular, Reference Archivist Rossy Mendez and Assistant Commissioner Ken Cobb were vital in helping me to chase down these photos.
Many thanks also to the writers who’ve inspired me and continue to graciously share their wisdom and expertise: David Critchley, Patrick Downey, Steve Turner and Mike Dash.
I hope to have my Amberg book in everyone’s hands by the end of the year. Stay tuned!
