Historian and Columbia University professor Kenneth T. Jackson edited this work that combines informative and interesting information about New York City into one volume, first published in 1995 by the New-York Historical Society and Yale University Press and now available in its second edition, published in 2010.


The encyclopedia covers the arts, architecture, demographics, education, environment, government and politics, media, popular culture, science, and transportation. It contains over 4,300 entries, including 680 illustrations, photographs, maps, charts and tables that combine statistics and public records that are often difficult to access.
