I usually don't read memoirs, but because of the topic and Adam Gopnik's writing talent, I picked up this book for spring break. Gopnik captures the NYC experience with humor, charm, and wit. It reminded me about both the best parts and not so great parts of living in NYC.

I do admire Adam Gopnik's writing, but this book was not quite as enchanting as his book about Paris, Paris to the Moon.
Still, I love his observations of New York post 9/11, especially as seen from the perspective of his small children.
