Notes
Content: Printed on border: "The richest business section of the world, America's financial centre, and the headquarters of the commercial, manufacturing, shipping, mining and other interests. Twenty years ago Trinity Church was the city's conspicuous landmark. To-day she is hemmed in by many structures greatly her superior in height, and similar structures keep rising everywhere. Along with them develop public buildings, railroads, tunnels, bridges, parks, wharves, ferries, and the vast and intricate affairs of a cosmopolis with 4,000,000 people. The North River and the East River converge here and flow into the Atlantic." Includes additional text identifying points of interest.
