Thank you to bookish first, the author, and the publishing company for a free copy of the E-book in exchange for an honest review.

Growing Up Bank Street is a very written memoir by author Donna Florio.

This book was a truly fascinating memoir of life in Greenwich Village and Bank Street that spans over several decades. The author was able to transport the reader right into the heart of city life. As the raeder, I felt as if I could see the various residents, as if I were there in real life! The reader is brought into the various lives of artists, performers, actors, the social elite! I really enjoyed the theater aspect and Opera mentions in the book. I also enjoyed the heartfelt descriptions of the stories these various people who make up this street and neighborhood. Some of the stories were funny, some emotional, some victorious.

I recommend this book to all!
