Colorful History

To The Editor:

Can we ever have (“Uncovering Forgotten New York,” July 21) too many historians? Never! Especially when they so eloquently bring our fascinating local history back to life. Coney Island’s “Dreamland,” the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire—almost everyone knows a little about these, but it’s the efforts of people like Kevin Baker filling in the details and revealing the backstory that makes it play like a newsreel. Thanks for introducing us to him.
