City Hall Park in 1826


Watercolor by Alexander Jackson Davis (1803–1892). Inscription on print: "Trees much affected by caterpillars that season". A similar drawing was made by the same author in 1827. Source (edited): Museum of the City of New York.

The New York City Hall is on the right. It opened in 1812, when the city government moved from the old Federal Hall. The old Park Theater is on the left. Saint Paul's Church is in the distance, behind trees, on Broadway.
