"Downtown Paterson is a nostalgic picture book with a few things to say . . .
Affectionate and nostalgic treatment generally characterizes Arcadia Publishing's Images of America, a series of largely pictures-with-captions books on U.S. towns and cities, usually compiled by local writers and historians. Both elements are present in 'Downtown Paterson,' edited by journalist/poet June Avignone, and collaborators, but there are somber hues in the picture of the 'Old Silk City' that emerges."
.-- William Gordon, Newark Star Ledger
