abstract
The third segment in an 8-part series chronicling the history of New York City from 1609 through 2003. Episode three: Covers the city during the period after the Civil War -- "the Gilded Age." From 1865 through 1898, the city grows at a staggering rate--demographically, geographically and financially--and takes on enormous challenges such as the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, and sees the rise of Tammany Hall and Boss Tweed. By the end of the decade, New York has become home to the world's greatest concentration of wealth, and of poverty.
