Who's the Giver?
Some extraordinarily kind and generous soul sent me The Encyclopedia of New York City from my Amazon wishlist for my birthday tomorrow, but neglected to identify themselves on the note in the package. It's a truly fantastic gift, so if you sent it, please let me know so I can properly thank you.
To the rest of you, I'd strongly recommend the book. Obviously, as a 1300+ page reference book, it's not exactly light reading, but it's still well worth keeping around if you're a fan of the city.
