Lower Manhattan – Did you know?
New York City is a city of neighborhoods and no neighborhood has more spectacular sights, nor more important links to American history then Lower Manhattan.
The Gotham Center for New York City History, a research and public education institution, publishes “Gotham” a blog that is endlessly fascinating for scholars (and non-scholars alike) of New York City history. I am most interested in those essays that cover Lower Manhattan. Here are three more that I find especially compelling (m):
The Saw-Kill and the Making of Dutch Manhattan — The Gotham Center for New York City History
Notes on the Manhattan Purchase — The Gotham Center for New York City History
Dealing with Refugees in 17th c. Manhattan — The Gotham Center for New York City History
