The History Of New York City

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Pigs and pirates roam the dirt streets of lower Manhattan, George Washington is sworn in as the first president of the new American nation, Charles Finney leads anti-slavery rallies and religious revivals, thousands of immigrants crowd into the notorious Five Points neighborhood, political power is dominated by Tammany Hall, the artists of the Harlem Renaissance create cultural treasures and Mayor LaGuardia strives to make New York the “capital of the world.” It is all a part of the history of New York City! Examine the peoples, places and events which made this urban center the international economic, political and cultural capital it is today. The city has always been a haven for numerous religious, social and ethnic groups and while they have not always enjoyed a peaceful coexistence, they have defined the essence of New York City.
