The City of New York free pdf Excerpt from The City of New York: In the Year of Washington's Inauguration, 1789 On the first day of January 1789 New York City had not yet fully recovered from the effects of the great fires of September 21st 1776 and of August 3rd 1778 nor from its occupation by the British during seven years which ended on the 25th of November 1783.

Law in abundance, the Trespass Act is food for the lawyers - yet we say there is no money. Feasting and every kind of extravagance go on - reconcile these things if you can. Gloomy joys." In a paper published by the American Philosophical Society in 1843 Samuel Breck also writes as follows: "In the month of June of the year 1787, on my return from a residence of a few years in France, I arrived at that city, and found it a neglected place, built chiefly of wood, and in a state of prostration and decay.
