"For native Brooklynite Roz Chast, adjusting to life in the suburbs (where people own trees!?) was surreal. But she recognized that for her kids, the reverse was true. On trips into town, they would marvel at the strange world of Manhattan: its gum-wad-dotted sidewalks, honey-combed streets, and 'those West Side Story-things' (fire escapes). Their wonder inspired 'Going into Town,' part playful guide, part New York stories, and part love letter to the city, told through Chast's laugh-out-loud, touching, and true cartoons."--Amazon.com.

This felt like a book Chast's publisher likely pressured her to come up with quickly to follow the success of her previous book set in NYC "Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?" This one is just a cartoon version of a NYC guidebook for those not familiar with it. There is some humor, not a lot, but if you already know the city reasonably well, there isn't much here of interest. If you don't know the city very well, then you'll at least learn a few things about it.
