EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

This fascinating history of “The Crossroads of the World”—the junction of Seventh Avenue and Broadway in New York City—takes readers back more than a century to the early 1800s, then moves forward in time to the present day and beyond. The area known for its hustle and bustle and theatergoers was once rural farmland owned by Medcef Eden, and now-glitzy Broadway was nothing but a dirt path. The name “Times Square” was coined on April 19, 1904, the same year the new headquarters of the New York Times—or One Times Square—went up. Like Times Square itself, this book is pure visual stimulation, as the pages brim with sidebars, cross sections, maps, and even a diagram of the infamous New Year’s Eve ball. McKendry’s text is full of juicy nuggets, but the engaging and nostalgia-inspiring sepia and full-color watercolors steal the show, offering up such dizzying perspectives that readers likely won’t notice (or care) that there isn’t a single photo in the book. The only things missing are detailed source notes and an index. Still, this is an awe-inspiring tribute to the heartbeat of New York City. Grades 5-8. --Ann Kelley
