Summary

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.
