Descrizione

The facility of communication between the two cities, has tended no doubt to the increase and prosperity Of Brooklyn, for many merchants, and other citizens, who carry on business in New York, have their private residences in Brooklyn, preferring it, not only on account Of the beauty and salubrity of the situation, but also for the excellence of the water, in which respect it greatly surpasses New York.
