Early 19th-century New York was a place of tremendous transformation. This once agrarian landscape became a bustling metropolis through dramatic feats of infrastructure: the Grid street system, the Erie Canal, the Croton Aqueduct, which brought fresh water to the greater public for the first time. Much of this transformation was initiated by European immigrants –from the inventors and engineers who worked with imported European building manuals to the day laborers who performed hard and dangerous labor. This exhibit traces the development of the city to these heady days. Included with admission.
