“We should all buy Jeremiah Moss’s book, Vanishing New York.” — Sarah Jessica Parker 
“I haven’t read a more impassioned book in over a decade. Vanishing New York is angry, incredulous, but also full of insight into a city of legend, where every legend happened to be true.” — Gary Shteyngart
“Jeremiah Moss came to the party that is New York City just in time to see it turn into a wake.His book is lucid, eloquent, phenomenally detailed, and terribly sad. Future generations, assuming there are any, will read it in wonder and disbelief.” — Luc Sante
“Meticulously researched, thoroughly reported, at once a call to arms and a soul cry, Vanishing New York is a love letter to originality and the human spirit. Grab a knish and settle in.” — Charles Bock, New York Times bestselling author of Alice and Oliver
“A vigorous, righteously indignant book that would do Jane Jacobs proud.” — Kirkus
“One of the most thorough and pugnacious chroniclers of New York’s blandification.” — The Atlantic
“A vigorous, righteously indignant book that would do Jane Jacobs proud.” — Kirkus Reviews
“A very good, angrily passionate, and ultimately saddening book [. . . ] brilliantly written and well-informed.” — Booklist
“For those of us who’ve watched hopelessly as our beautiful city has turned into an assortment of Duane Reades and Starbucks, this book is a must-read. Jeremiah Moss bears witness on our behalf, and puts it all into brilliant perspective.” — Andy Cohen, host and executive producer, “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen”
“A wrenching, exhaustive chronicle of the ‘hypergentrification of New York’ [. . .] Every page is charged with Moss’s deep love of New York. It is both a vital and unequivocally depressing read.” — The Village Voice
