Drawing upon the extensive holdings of the Museum of the City of New York, this volume concisely and entertainingly traces the city's evolution from pristine wilderness to great metropolis. Organized both thematically and chronologically, the book brings the city's incredible story to life through approximately 20 facsimile documents, including the first ticket sold on the subway, immigration papers, an invitation to the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge, the newspaper covering Lincoln's funeral, and World War II air raid instructions.
