Betsy Bradley, one of the authors in our forthcoming Cambridge Companion to the Literature of New York City, recently curated a little Knickerbocker slide show for The New York Times. You can find it here.
Slide number five (above), which shows the side of the restaurant Superfine, housed in the former Knickerbocker Feather factory, also happens to be the place where Betsy held her wedding reception last month — a bit of serendipity, because Betsy had no idea of the site’s history when she chose the restaurant!
Betsy’s book, Knickerbocker: The Myth that Made New York, was published last month by Rutgers University Press.

The restaurant in slide 4 belongs to a friend of ours from our days living down at the seaport. Great place for a casual lunch if you’re in the area!
