Chronicles of Old New York: Exploring Manhattan\'s Landmark Neighborhoods

    By

    The history of New York City is written in its streets; uncover it with "Chronicles of Old New York." Discover 400 years of innovation through the true stories of the visionaries, risk-takers, dreamers, and schemers who built Manhattan. Witness life during the city s earliest days, when Greenwich Village was a bucolic suburb and disease was a fact of daily life. Find out which park covers a sea of unmarked graves. Explore the city s dark side, from the slums of Five Points to Harlem s Prohibition-era speakeasies. Then see it all for yourself with guided walking tours of each of Manhattan s historic neighborhoods, illustrated with color photographs and period maps."
