NEW YORK CITY NEIGHBORHOODS
The 18th Century

Nan A. Rothschild
Barnard College / Columbia University
New York, New York

With a New Introduction by the Author

from the reviews . . .

“This is the first major publication to integrate New York City archaeological data into a broader context . . . At once a long overdue reference for the student of New York City history while at the same time a point of departure for broader studies of urban development.”

Valerie DeCarlo in American Antiquity

“This work is a building block. It raises important questions and proposes a methodology. . . . that makes sense for the analysis of archeological data and the creation of historical ethnography.”

Barbara J. Little in Science

“An impressive view of New York’s colonial development oriented toward the interaction between wealth and ethnicity, with insights into urban structure. . . . This book should be of interest to students of cities and urban studies and of New York specifically.”

Stanley South in American Anthropologist

“A welcome addition to the impoverished (quantitatively speaking) or deliciously rich (qualitatively speaking) 1980s’ monographs written by historical archaeologists. . . It is an admirable piece of work that builds on 15 years of experience with urban resources.”

Anne Yentsch in Historical Archaeology
