A Compelling Portrait Of The Greatest And Most Complex Of Cities

The Country And The City (1609-1825)
This dramatic and lyrical first episode chronicles the rise of New York from its settlement by the Dutch in the early 17th century through the explosion of the Erie Canal in 1825.

Order And Disorder (1825-1865)
The second episode chronicles the rise of New York from merchant city to industrial metropolis as the commercial revolution triggered by the Erie Canal transforms every aspect of life in the city.

Sushine And Shadow (1865-1898)
The third episode chronicles the history of New York during the giddy decades following the Civil War - what Mark Twain called "the Gilded Age."

The Power And The People (1898-1918)
In this pivotal fourth episode, the forces of capitalism and democracy in New York come to a stunning crescendo, as the city's tremendous industrial engine draws in people from around the world.

Cosmopolis (1919-1931)
Nearly a century and a half of capitalist growth and astonishing demographic and physical transformation comes to an extraordinary climax during the roaring twenties, as New York finishes assembling the components of a mass consumer society.

City Of Tomorrow (1929-1941)
The sixth episode chronicles the dramatic and increasingly fateful events following the crash of 1929 - as the greatest depression in American history plunged the city and nation into economic gloom.

The City And The World (1945-Present)
The story of New York comes to a stunning crescendo in the seventh and final episode of the series, which chronicles the turbulent and often harrowing years from 1945 to the present.
