Excerpt from New Harlem Past and Present: The Story of an Amazing Civic Wrong, Now at Last to Be Righted

But neither the obstacles which preceded, nor those which are likely to result from this challenge, can modify the determination of those who have set themselves to right a great wrong by exploiting the truth. And truth was never compassed with greater difficulty, with more disheartening drawbacks, or in the face of more emphatic predictions of failure.

To vindicate the rights of the Town of New Harlem some seventy years after its last recorded meetings were held; to restore to the descendants of its incorporators the land given to their forefathers, and held by those forefathers through pioneer perils and hardships, is a task requiring un usual courage and resources.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 440 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from New Harlem Past and Present: The Story of an Amazing Civic Wrong, Now at Last to Be RightedThe purpose with which this book has been prepared is suggested by its sub-title. The volume has been written to prove that the Town of New Harlem has not been effectively erased from the map; that there is not only a past but a present New Harlem; that the most extraordinary civic injustice in the history of the American commonwealth is at last to stand, stripped of its giants robe, before the tribunal of American law. It is difficult to state, in even moderate terms, the titanic dimensions of the enterprise of which this book forms a part, without the appearance of sensationalism. It is not possible to question the status of the title to nearly half of Manhattan Island, in the heart of the greatest city of the Western Hemisphere, without seeming to seek notoriety. The challenge scarcely has a precedent in the history of the world. But neither the obstacles which preceded, nor those which are likely to result from this challenge, can modify the determination of those who have set themselves to right a great wrong by exploiting the truth. And truth was never compassed with greater difficulty, with more disheartening drawbacks, or in the face of more emphatic predictions of failure. To vindicate the rights of the Town of New Harlem some seventy years after its last recorded meetings were held; to restore to the descendants of its incorporators the land given to their forefathers, and held by those forefathers through pioneer perils and hardships, is a task requiring unusual courage and resources. The coming of this issue was prepared by events. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from New Harlem Past and Present: The Story of an Amazing Civic Wrong, Now at Last to Be Righted The Town of New Harlem is to come into its own. It was never legally merged into the City of New York. Its boundaries are fixed by irrefutable patents; its rights entrenched in the constitutional inviolability of a Trust. To tell the story of the Town is the purpose of the chapters immediately following. The author of these pages has chosen in this brief space to set forth those features of Harlem s history which might not only lead up to the legal questions at issue, but illuminate the domestic and social life of an interesting period. Details, humble in themselves. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
