Overview

From the Bronx to the Battery and beyond, New York is a wonderful town—and one that was centuries in the making. With the Statue of Liberty raising her torch high, it became the shining symbol of a promised land for immigrants throughout the world. Follow the city’s growth, and look at her buildings old and new, from Trinity Church to today’s glass and steel skyscrapers. The trip passes through Ellis Island, first stop for many new Americans; Battery Park City, where Castle Clinton still stands; Hester Street, once filled with peddlers selling their wares; the original and new Penn Stations and Madison Square Gardens; and more. Sidebars look in depth at such New York attractions as the subway.
