About The Book
« No one came closer to catching the common parlance of New York in all its uncommonness than John McNulty. » —Phillip Lopate
« This Place on Third Avenue is a gift of a book, long overdue, and with a tender and delicious memoir by Faith McNulty, John’s widow… McNulty’s characters are the ones you just chatted with in the street, the elevator, or, God help us, in the saloon. He shows us that wherever you look, there’s a story. »-Frank McCourt
« John McNulty, city man and newspaperman, self-assigned in his mature years to human-interest stories of the world around him, left a body of work that throbs with his love of life…American writing in our time developed few men with so keen an eye and so sharp an ear. [He] cannot be replaced. »- James Thurber, in his New Yorker obituary of McNulty
Author Biography: From 1937 until his death in 1956, John McNulty walked many beats for The New Yorker, but his favorite — and the one that he made famous — was Tim & Joe Costello’s, an old-fashioned Irish saloon at Third Avenue and Forty-fourth Street. The place is gone now — it was leveled and replaced by the lobby of a skyscraper in 1973-but it and its hard-living mid-century patrons live on in these twenty-eight immortal stories and sketches, many of them collected here for the first time.
