First Person Account of Antebellum New York City,
This review is from: The Diary of George Templeton Strong (Paperback)
George Templeton Strong was a student, lawyer and prominent citizen in early New York City who faithfully recorded the events of his time in his diary. The diary follows Strong from his days as a student at Kings College (now Columbia University) through his early law career and the entire Civil War era. This diary is a well informed, witty chronicle of the culture, music, restaurants, politics and figures of New York City in the 1820s.
