I'll bet is still is and...I would prove it. And she did, launching herself and her skeptical companion on a series of explorations through all five boroughs of the fabled city. Not for them the beaten track: They braved Bellevue Hospital at night, accompanied New York garbage to its final resting place, blew their minds at such instutitions of higher learning as the Atlas Barber School, the International Bartenders School, and Miss de Vores School of Charm for black girls. They visited His Eminence at the Archdiocese, His Honor at Gracie Mansion, and The World of Darkness at the Bronx Zoo. They went to parties, museums, libraries, to homes of outrageous eccentricity, to Puerto Rican markets, and to Thanksgiving Dinner at a Salvation Army Center. They saw the silent gold at the Federal Reserve Bank....

You will find the text to be interesting and the supportive photographs and illustrations delightful, perhaps bringing back memories of yesterday or the day before. The writers, knowing that Tioga County is beginning to turn the corner into the 21st century, have tried to reveal the 20th century progress in sports, women, industry, etc., as well as the normal changes in public protection, transportation, social life, agriculture, etc.Ó
