Since the New York Times‘s City Room blog has devoted a post to The Almanac of New York City, edited by Kenneth T. Jackson and Fred Kameny, we’ll wait until next week to post some more facts and figures. (You can view earlier posts about the book here, here, and here.)
The New York Times calls the book, “[A] compendium of fascinating facts and statistics that is a must-have for New Yorkers who think they know their city well.”
The Times also offers a quiz based on facts from the book and if you are really keen on testing your NYC knowledge, you can also take our quiz.
