Additional Details:
The approach to New York City from the bay presents a sight that has no parallel in any other city in the world. Travelers for the first time are profoundly impressed by the natural scenery as well as the wonderful creations of human hands. Passing the gateway to the American metropolis, The Narrows, where the bay is barely a mile wide, a succession of interesting scenes comes into view. The green ramparts of the several forts, behind which lurk powerful batteries; Robin's Reef Lighthouse; Bedloe's, Ellis and Governor's Islands; Brooklyn Bridge, and near by the Navy Yard. Attractions multiply as the steamer proceeds, and attention is now concentrated on the imposing commercial, municipal and office buildings, as the far-famed "sky scrapers" loom up at close range.
