    1. Well, this volume in Akashic Books NOIR series is the first time the formula changes a bit. As I've already noted in previous reviews of Brooklyn Noir, San Francisco Noir and Chicago Noir, the set-up is basic - an anthology of noir (in this case, read roughly "crime") stories set in titular town. Now, the 3 previous volumes have all been fairly middle-of-the-road, the count of excellent stories balanced against the weak ones, with a solid amount of good stories to fill the center - but that's ok [...]



    2. New York City Noir: The Five Borough Set collects the five NYC borough installments in our award-winning Akashic Noir Series into a single e-book edition: Brooklyn Noir, edited by Tim McLoughlin, Manhattan Noir, edited by Lawrence Block, Bronx Noir, edited by S.J. Rozan, Queens Noir, edited by Robert Knightly, and Staten Island Noir, edited by Patricia Smith. Launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir, each book in the series is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or l [...]


    3. This was a rather uneven collection. All of the stories had been previously published. They also all seemed kind of dated. Almost every story was based on some cliched version of a Brooklynite. I'd already read the Lethem story and the Selby story elsewhere and they were really the only ones I liked. It was quite a bit of a task getting through a few of them. It was a little disappointing to see how my home town is portrayed by some.


    4. Another interesting collection of stories set in Brooklyn and all had enough of a "noir" feeling to be included in this series. The stories that I enjoyed the most were 'The Horror at Red Hook', 'Tugboat Syndrome ', 'The Best Friend Murder ' and 'The Day of The Bullet'.



    5. Especially liked stories by Lawrence Block, Salvatore La Puma, Jonathan Lethem, Donald Westlake, and Colson Whitehead
