“ Bessie," says the man, "We did okay, didn’t we?”

"Martin," says the woman, "We did better than okay. We have a lifetime of memories; three beautiful children who think you are kind, generous, and a bit crazy; and two healthy grandchildren who think the world of you.”

Only in New York Vol. 3

38 WILDLY ENTERTAINING, HIGHLY PERSONAL ROLLER COASTER RIDES THAT HIGHLIGHT NEW YORK'S UNIQUE DNA.

38 more humorous, poignant, entertaining, and powerful short stories about a New York that is almost gone, chronicled by Manhattan-born M.G. Crisci, the critically acclaimed author of 18 books based on true events.

This final volume of the popular series again exposes New Yorkers as arrogant, confident, aloof, and insular yet surprisingly self-effacing, thoughtful, sensitive, and willing to offer kindnesses to those in need.

Among the memorable stories, you'll learn how a heavyweight boxing champion fell victim to a salacious rumor created by a cub reporter, how a high-powered New York executive lost his shirt negotiating with an Arab vendor, how an aging Walter Cronkite came to lead the UNLV marching band, and why the Russians and Chinese butted heads at the United Nations.
