city story

18 . May . 2011

‘if we are to love our city,
we must allow it to tell us its story.

a city is as a city was.
its past is prologue to its present and future.
you need to learn about its origins,
its formation and its growth.

its colorful characters and key players
down through the generations,
the sites where its history was made and
its pivotal events transpired.’
– robert linthicum

‘the story of New York is one
that reads us
even as we read it.’
– prof. ken jackson + david dunbar

‘the more we know about [New York’s] past
the more we care about its future.’
– edwin burrows + mike wallace
