Description
 
Nowhere is the New York City of 1892 chronicled better or more exhaustively than in this book edited & pub. by Moses King. King & his staff rendered this thriving metropolis as no one had before. Much of King’s city has disappeared, but in these pages, gothic revival spires & cast-iron facades still sparkle in the sunlight, & one can peer down a 5th Ave. unblighted by cars. King’s photos capture public buildings, churches, city parks, transportation systems, even interiors just as they were in the gaslight era. The text is, if anything, even more striking, with 30 chapters about New York history, commercial establishments, literary culture, newspapers, amusement parks, & theaters. Includes 850 original black & white illustrations. Facsimile reprint of the 1892 edition.
