The Years of the City - Frederik Pohl

Frederik Pohl, one of the most honored science fiction writers of our time, gives us an extraordinary vision of a New York yet to come - from the wounded, struggling behemoth of tomorrow to the domed, atmospherically controlled megalopolis of the twenty-first century. In Pohl's prophetic novel, a woman awakes in another century, a man's eyes are replaced by radar, criminals are frozen for future justice, and hang gliders soar above Central Park.

New York - long the symbol of turmoil, tragedy and brilliance, becomes a dazzling metaphor for mankind's future - and for the promise of civilizaton.
