Reviews
"An informative and provocative read."--Tama Starr, Wall Street Journal--Tama Starr "Wall Street Journal" (10/3/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"Erudite but lavishly illustrated."--Sam Roberts, New York Times--Sam Roberts "New York Times" (10/19/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"The City's End explores the imaginative and often profitable ways that filmmakers, writers, and artists have blown up, incinerated, drowned or depopulated New York City. . . . Page thoughtfully analyzes why the city's ruination has been such an enduringly popular theme."--Ann Levin, Newsday--Ann Levin "Newsday" (12/12/2008 12:00:00 AM)
