Staten Island: Isle of the Bay
Arcadia Publishing, 2004 - Всего страниц: 159
Lying at the entrance to one of the world's greatest natural harbors, Staten Island has been a most alluring destination ever since Giovanni da Verrazano set eyes upon it in 1524. Even before Colonial times the borough played a significant role in our nation's development economically, culturally, and historically. From Revolutionary battles to Civil War draft riots, while hosting iconic businesses or creating inspiration for the likes of Olmsted and Thoreau, the island has cultivated a prolific and distinguished past that reflects the passion of the American spirit.
