Title: German New York City
Author: Staff Writer
Publisher: Book News, Inc.
Date: February 2010
This pictorial history of German immigrants who settled in New York City during the late 19th and early 20th centuries follows the movements of this population through the use of archival photographs from the Library of Congress and the author's own personal collection. Panchyk, a noted author, has been researching German immigrants since 1992, and his images of settlers and city landscapes through the decades capture the migration patterns from the Little Germany section of Manhattan to the surrounding boroughs and beyond. Photographs are organized according to such themes as religion and education, food and drink and culture and recreation.
