is both a love letter to a New York long past and a tribute to the transformative power of art. Christgau has chronicled many key cultural shifts of the last half
century and revolutionized the status of
the music critic in the
process. Going Into
 the City is a look back 
at the upbringing that 
grounded him, the history that transformed
 him and the music,
 books and films that
 showed him the way.
