Yorkville Books – Yorkville History Through Books and Web Sites

Over the years while we had the Yorkville web site, several books were written over the years. Some of those books were written by Yorkville residents presently how they experienced growing up in Yorkville. I also included a book by Rev.    who was a priest at St. Monaco’s Church. Rev. also wrote a book specifically about Yorkville and was put out under a small distribution and I have not been able to find this book.

  1. Hi, Marty!

    There is yet another book on Yorkville that was published in 2017. It’s called, “Little Bastards of Yorkville” (83 pp.) by Arthur Miller, who grew up on my block on 81st Street between York and East End Avenues and attended PS 158, Wagner Junior High PS 167, and HS of Commerce (the last two with me). He is a retired Brooklyn Music Teacher living in Sea Cliff Long Island. Arthur is a very talented man and musician.
