The US was the richest place on earth then, and NY then (as now) was its de facto capital.

The port was booming. This was before the advent of container shipping, so NY was the largest port in the US, and had been since the 1840s.

People also forget that NY was a huge manufacturing hub. It peaked during this period and accounted for 10% of the entire United States' industrial output.

NY was also the fastest growing city in the world by the end of the 19th century. It was home to 60,000 people in 1800, and by 1920 was home to 5,600,000 people. These people weren't moving here for no reason, it again goes back to the booming port, and the enormous amount manufacturing going on in the city.

Also during this period the US was creating enormous amounts of new wealth from entirely new industries like steel, and oil. And the magnates of those industries, the Carnegie's and Frick's from Pittsburgh, Rockefeller's from Cleveland, the Armor's from Chicago, moved to or had homes in New York. So by 1900 half of the countries millionaires lived, or had homes in New York.

It really is amazing to think the city is less than 400 years old, and is as powerful and influential as it is.

At over 200+ photos, Chapter 13 is absolutely MONSTROUS. Quite a few shots in color this time, plus a bonus video at the end.

I can't stop but stare at harlem area depicted in the picture. It resembles a shanty town, or am i wrong? It's really hard to tell.

After these boom years the logical result ofcourse was the 1929 crash. History always repeats itself.

Awesome thread by the way! The Brits forced us into a nice "trade".

Agreed, loving the discourse here. It is indeed quite surreal how quickly the city transformed over the decades. It's important to remember that at up till 1790 it was the US capitol. It was the single most important port town on the east coast and all the profit from trade had to go somewhere.
