New York is a city of continual immigration, and its people have been documented by artists and photographers from the earliest settlers to the present. This illustrated history sees the arrival of the first Dutch and English settlers in the 17th century. From there the book progresses through the Irish and German immigrations in the late-19th and early-20th century and the arrival of Italians and Eastern European Jews as well as Greeks, Slavs and African-Americans moving from the southern states after World War I. As the 20th century comes to a close, Caribbeans, Latinos, Africans and Asians have become the dominant New Yorkers. This book brings together images and documentary accounts from diaries, letters, news articles and other sources to explore the texture of the city and its inhabitants.
