In 1849, the Gold Rush sent hundreds of thousands of people rushing across the continent to California and Oregon. Thereafter, the ever-quickening pace of expansion would lead to a series of bloody confrontations between Native Americans and whites, culminating in the Minnesota uprising of 1862 and two years later, the massacre at Sand Creek1111ocn783246078visu20110.53New York, 1898-1918 the power and the peopleHistoryIn this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, filmmaker Ric Burns follows the city into the 20th century in the wake of an extraordinary wave of immigration and the birth of the skyscraper. As New York spilled into the new century, the extraordinary interplay of capitalism, democracy and transformation surged to a climax. During a single generation, over 10 million immigrants arrived in New York. The city itself became an even more dramatic lure with the construction of the first subways and skyscrapers. And arising from the plight of New York's most exploited citizens came landmark legislation that would eventually transform the lives of all Americans1101ocn783172656com20110.53New York 1825-1865 order and disorderHistoryThis episode of New York: A Documentary Film details New York's enormous growth as a booming commercial center and multi-ethnic port, and the mounting tensions that set the stage for the nation's bloodiest riot. Filmmaker Ric Burns examines how New York City swelled into the nation's greatest industrial metropolis as a massive wave of German and Irish immigration turned the city into one of the world's most complex urban environments, bringing with it a host of new social problems. The program reveals how the city's artists, innovators and leaders, from poet Walt Whitman to Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux (the designers of Central Park) grappled with the city's growing conflicts--which culminated in the catastrophic Civil War Draft Riots of 18631091ocn783246052visu20110.53New York, 1609-1825 the country and the cityHistoryThis episode of New York: A Documentary Film begins by identifying the key themes that shaped New York's history: commerce and capitalism, diversity and democracy, transformation and creativity. Filmmaker Ric Burns charts the development of the city founded by the Dutch as a purely commercial enterprise, first as New Amsterdam, a freewheeling enclave of trade and opportunity; then as the British colony of New York, bestowed as a birthday gift upon the Duke of York by his brother, King Charles, and fueled by slavery; soon after as a strategically pivotal locale in the American Revolution; and ultimately as the city of New York: the nation's first capital and the place destined to define urban life in America - and American ideals1081ocn773479072visu20110.56New York, 1865-1898 sunshine and shadowHistoryIn this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, Ric Burns turns to the period when greed and wealth fueled an expanding metropolis, even as politics and poverty defined it. Now the spotlight shines on the growth, glamour, and grief of New York during America's giddy postwar Gilded Age. Exploring the incomparable wealth of the robber barons and the unabashed corruption of political leaders, such as Tammany Hall boss William M. Tweed, the episode examines the era when the expansion of wealth and poverty--and the schism between them--built to a crescendo. The program ends as the city itself dramatically expands its boundaries, annexing Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island into a single massive metropolis--Greater New York971ocn783242113visu20110.53New York, 1945-2000 the city and the worldHistoryEducational filmsInternet videosIn this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, filmmaker Ric Burns explores the turbulent and often harrowing years from 1945 to 2003. Emerging from the Depression and the Second World War as the most powerful metropolis on Earth, New York soon confronted urban woes of unprecedented proportions, and fought for its very existence. In exploring the social, economic, and physical forces that swept through the city in the post-war period, this program examines the great African-American migration and Puerto Rican immigration of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s; the beginnings of white flight and suburbanization; and the massive physical changes wrought by highways and urban renewal, all of which were directed, to a surprising degree, by one man: Robert Moses. The film comes to a climax with the destruction of Penn Station, the battle over the Lower Manhattan Expressway, the social and fiscal crises of the 1960s and 1970s, and New York's miraculous revival in the last quarter-century973ocn048672397visu20010.19New York, a documentary filmHistoryDrama"Themes of democracy and capitalism are brought to a moving zenith during the period, as New York's hybrid cultural style mixes high culture and low, black culture and white, in a new and distinctively American form, that is manufactured in New York and distributed to the rest of the world.--container961ocn783242077com20110.53New York, 1929-1941 city of tomorrowHistoryEducational filmsInternet videosDuring this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, filmmaker Ric Burns documents how the dramatic events that followed the Crash of 1929 fueled the greatest financial depression in American history and plunged the city and the nation into economic gloom. In little more than ten years, immense new forces were unleashed in New York, from the Depression itself to the New Deal, which permanently altered the city and the country. Along the way, two of the most remarkable New Yorkers of all time came to the fore: Mayor Fiorello La Guardia and master builder Robert Moses, both of whom sought to create a bold new city of the future. This program examines their careers in detail, as well as the immense public works that transformed the city in the 1930s951ocn787859531visu20110.53New York, 1919-1931 cosmopolisHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcEducational filmsInternet videosDuring this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, filmmaker Ric Burns explores how the post-World War I economic boom, the rise of consumer culture, and the birth of new mass media industries fueled the convergence of an incredible array of human and cultural energies, ending with the stock market crash of 1929 and the construction of the Empire State Building. In just over a decade, New York gave birth to its signature skyscrapers and to artistic creations like F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, George Gershwin's ⁰́₋Rhapsody in Blue,⁰́₊ and to the jazz compositions of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. Along the way, Harlem emerged as the undisputed capital of the African-American experience and the new media industries of advertising, radio, public relations, and magazine publishing found their homes in midtown Manhattan913ocn048672477visu20010.19New York, a documentary filmHistoryDrama"The sixth episode chronicles the dramatic and increasingly fateful events following the crash of 1929--as the greatest depression in American history plunged the city and nation into economic gloom."--Container903ocn048672340visu20010.18New York, a documentary filmHistoryJuvenile worksDrama"In this pivotal fourth episode, the forces of capitalism and democracy in New York come to a stunning crescendo, as the city's tremendous industrial engine draws in people from around the world--tripling New York's population in less than a single lifetime."--Container903ocn048672287visu20010.18New York, a documentary filmHistoryDrama"The third episode chronicles the history of New York during the Gilded Age.
