In your own words, explain the rise of
New York using both the lectures and the following two documentary films: Ric Burns, New
York: A Documentary, episodes two and three: “Order and Disorder (1825-1865) and “Sunshine
and Shadow” (1865-1898). (These films are also on Youtube.) These are long documentaries, so
set time aside to watch them and take notes. The point is not for you to dwell on everything in
the films, but to focus on the most relevant parts for writing your assignment which in this case
is to be a 300-word count short essay. Do the best you can with it.
