Book - 2014
Rate this:
Five seminal events occurred in New York City in the pivotal year 1964: the "British Invasion," the arrival of the Beatles in February; the murder of Kitty Genovese in Queens in March; the World's Fair that ran in Queens between April and October; the "race riots" in Brooklyn and Harlem in July; and the World Series in the Bronx between the New York Yankees and the St. Louis Cardinals. Through an exploration of these landmark events--the biggest thing in pop culture since Elvis's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, a shocking crime that reportedly went ignored, the last great world's fair, a key moment in the Civil Rights Movement, and a legendary championship game that marked the end of an era--readers will have a better understanding of the social turbulence in New York City and the United States in the mid-1960s.
