This may have been the first non-fiction book I ever read in French. I loved it. Of course I am partial to histories of New York, though the ones I own are otherwise in English.

It is amusing to read in French about things like the birth of Columbia University, Shearman & Sterling, Fraunces Tavern, and Macy’s. If you would like to enhance your knowledge of French and New York City at the same time, I recommend it!

I bought my copy at Rizzoli Bookstore at 31 West 57th Street.
