From ‘Up in the Old Hotel’ by Joseph Mitchell.
Brings to life a bygone New York and the real life characters who made it what it was in the 1930s and before. Beautifully voiced stories about McSorley’s, Caughnawaga high-steel workers, Great South Bay clammers, and so much more. Thanks so much, mom, for giving it to me to read. It’s a treasure trove.
