Lucy Sante- Nineteen Reservoirs

Genre: nonfiction/History/Science

4 Stars

Interesting historical information on NYC waters

This is an interesting title written by Lucy Sante. Nineteen Reservoirs explores the history of the New York City's water supply. The reservoirs, nineteen to be exact, supply NYC, however, they are from different areas of the state of New York. To me, the book was to share the information about the history of the water that is sent to the city, made up of islands and Burroughs, and how it affected the areas where the water came from. Ecosystems changed. Different lands, including existing farms were bought, in order to provide the city. I'm from upstate New York, and wasn't aware of this history, and it is very intriguing. I always love a good historic book, especially nonfiction, and local. Because in New York, there is more than just the city. I hope to read more books by this author. Nineteen Reservoirs is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I read this book to give my unbiased and honest review. Amy's Bookshelf Reviews recommends that anyone who reads this book, to also write a review.
