The rich history of New York unfolds through the city's earliest publications. In 1693, William Bradford's broadside recounts a speech by Governor Benjamin Fletcher regarding qTheir Majesties Province of New York.q Building from there, we are treated to major historic incidents including the execution of Nathan Hale (1776), Washington's farewell to his officers at New York's Fraunces Tavern (1783), Amistad (1839), early engravings of the city, the installation of the Statue of Liberty, the construction Grand Central Terminal, and of many major landmarks through the 1939 Worlds Fair. Immigrants arriving at Ellis Island and reports on city workers combine with social and political scandal to show that some things never really do change. A wonderful gift for anyone who loves New York and its boroughs.2 ! !II¹.
