Newsvine – Balloon rides come to New York’s Central Park

I recall in I. Stokes “Iconography of Manhattan Island” there was an early hot air balloon riding inside a structure, in the early 19th century. The very short “day book” listing was intriguing. 1819? or something. Like the early “telegraphy” between buildings in City Hall Park, it predated the actual dates for some things we think about. “Only in New York, kids only in New York.” – Cindy Adams Reply #1 – Fri Jul 25, 2008 10:50 AM EDT
