Description

Excerpt from History of the City of New York: From Its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time The preparation of this work was first suggested by the need of collecting the floating facts relative to the history and growth of our city, and condensing them into a compact form for the use of the general reader. In the short space of two hundred and fifty years, New York has sprung up, as it were, by magic, from a hamlet of four wretched huts, into the commercial metropolis of the western hemisphere. The many changes that have occurred during this time have been noted by lovers of their native city, who have made collections from time to time of facts and incidents invaluable to the historian yet these are scattered among numerous volumes, where few have time to seek and unearth them. Histories of the State also abound but there is not a single history of the city of New York from its earliest settlement to the present time.
