Empire City: New York Through the Centuries Paperback - 2005

by Kenneth Jackson (Editor); David Dunbar (Editor)

This major anthology brings together the best literary writing about New York--from O. Henry, Theodore Dreiser, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and John Steinbeck to Paul Auster and James Baldwin.


First line

Before 1524, when Giovanni da Verrazano, an Italian in the employ of France, became the first known white man to sail into the great harbor where the Hudson river flows into the Atlantic Ocean, the place that would come to be known as New York City had already been inhabited for centuries by Indians of the Algonquin language group.
