Excerpt from New York; Its Past and Present: Compiled for the Exclusive Use of the Traveling Public The stranger who visits the city of New York for the first time, naturally desires to kw something more about the Metropolis of the New World than have been afforded him by the meagre accounts that he has from time to time seen. There are many interesting localities, scattered in and around the city, and its suburbs, that are unkwn, even to residents of many years; the endeavor in this work has been to collect them under appropriate headings, and to give such brief descriptions as may serve more fully to guide the stranger to their whereabouts. Particular attention is called to the advertisements: they are those of strictly first-class establishments that invite the reader's patronage.
