One small detail the story mentions is the "View of St. Paul’s Church and the Broadway stages, N.Y.," by Hugh Reinagle, a painting that illustrated all the different stage coaches that plied Broadway in the 1830s. Since the print itself wasn't able to be included in the story, we've posted it here.
Enjoy the story!
