Once again, we will jump in our time machine--this time setting the dial for 150 years ago and New York City in 1872.
Modern New York guidebooks came of age in the era around the Civil War. In this talk, James Nevius will use Miller's "New York As It is" (also know as the "Stranger's Guide to New York, Brooklyn, and Adjacent Places") to explore the city as it was a century-and-a-half ago. What were the big sights on every tourist's list? What places that existed then can we still visit today?
