Summary
Chronicles the rise of New York from its discovery in 1609 through the explosion of commercial growth sparked by the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825. The film examines the defining role the Dutch played in the development of the city's character, the impact of the British empire and the horrors of slavery, the establishment of the Stock Exchange, New York's fateful role in the American revolution and its brief tenure as the nation's capital
