Nm Peter Julius Aravena Sloan, Edited by Anda Aravena

Bobby Fischer won the world chess championship in 1972 and the chess boom started. The Village Chess Shop opened on Thompson Street, Washington Square Park chess tables turned into a regular venue, Times Square 42nd Street opened chess tables not only at Bryant Park but also on Broadway and several indoors clubs. Chess was every where. This book covers 40 years of history of the NY Chess scene. Great reading for tourists and locals alike.
