The Story of Manhattan
By Charles Hemstreet
Charles Scribner's Sons
1901
PREFACE

Here the history of New York City is told as a story, in few words. The effort has been to make it accurate and
interesting. The illustrations are largely from old prints and wood engravings. Few dates are used. Instead, a
Table of Events has been added which can readily be referred to. The Index to Chapters also gives the years in
which the story of each chapter occurs.
