Nooks & Corners of Old New York

by Charles Hemstreet, illustrations by E. C. Peixotto


For lovers and historians of New York City, Nooks & Corners of Old New York is a wonderful resource. Charles Hemstreet offers a detailed look at the history that shaped the physical structure New York City held at the turn of the 20th century, and the text is accompanied by pen-and-ink drawings by E. C. Peixetto, which help give further insight on the architectural styles of the city and the end of the 1800s. Hemstreet wrote extensively of New York City, including other words, such as When Old New York was Young (1902), Literary New York (1903), and The Story of Manhattan (1907).
