New York City Transportation History

Two new books examine transportation in the New York City area:

Kurt C. Schlichting’s Grand Central’s Engineer: William J. Wilgus and the Planning of Modern Manhattan  and Robert W. Jackson’s Highway under the Hudson: A History of the Holland Tunnel. Sevin Yildiz reviews both books in the Journal of Transport History and also on his blog
