Excerpt from History of the City of New York

Bowling Green, where the Dutch lads and lasses erected their May-pole and danced around it, and where, at a later date, the patriotic citizens kindled bonfires in honor of liberty with stamp acts and royal effigies, is almost forgotten in the upward course of the tide of business; and the Battery, with Castle Garden, has fallen into the hands of the Commissioners of Emi gration. We are more remiss than our neighboring cities. Boston never forgets to commemorate the anniversary of her tea-party; few New Yorkers know even that a similar tea-party was held one night in their own harbor. Boston does not forget her Massacre New York is oblivious of her battle of Golden Hill, her fierce contests around the liberty-pole, and her thousands of victims from the pestilential prison ships. The traditions of our Dutch ancestry are well nigh forgotten, and little remains of the once strongly marked individuality of our city. It is true that the in?uence still lingers; that the broad, cosmopolitan character, the liberal, tolerant spirit, and the genial, hospitable nature ingrafted on the city by its early settlers, still remain to it. It is true, too, that, as a general rule, New Yorkers think less of men than they do of deeds, and, provided that a thing is done, pay little heed to the means that conduced to its accomplish ment. Yet this is in danger of being carried too far when it renders them forgetful of those memorials which it should be the pride and the glory of every people to cherish.
