Catch the excitement of 19th-century New York City—a boomtown, a promised land, and a place of social upheaval. New modes of transportation bring great wealth to the city and facilitate changes in daily life. Waves of new immigrants provide cheap labor for growing industries. The line of settlement moves up the island as social conflicts and the Civil War take their toll. This course will include four illustrated lectures and four walking tours of Washington Square, Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, and Grand Central Terminal.
