Additional Details:
The Erie Canal, connecting Lake Erie with the Hudson River, was begun in 1817 and completed in 1825. By this enterprise New York harbor was connected by water with the remotest regions of the Great Lakes, commerce was greatly increased, and New York, which formerly ranked second to Philadelphia in size, soon became the metropolis of the New World.
