Synopsis

Over the last twenty years, New York City has been convulsed by enormous challenges: terrorist attack, blackout, hurricane, recession, pandemic. New Yorkers is a grand portrait of the irrepressible city and a hymn to the vitality and resilience of its people. Craig Taylor spent years meeting New Yorkers--rich and poor, old and young, native and immigrant--and getting them to share indelible true tales. Here are the voices of those who propel the city each day--subway conductor, nurse, bodega cashier, electrician who keeps the lights on at the top of the Empire State Building--as well as unforgettable glimpses of the city, from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade by a balloon handler to the Statue of Liberty by one of its security guards. New Yorkers captures the strength of the city that--no matter what it goes through--dares call itself the greatest in the world.
