Charles Dickens, New York
In addition to the Big City, New York is known for its amazing landscapes, beautiful lakes, and numerous small communities. The culture of American small towns is strong throughout New York, from centers of art to rural farm towns.
The staff of the New York Public Library cleaned up their vast and centuries-old archive. They organized an impressive free exhibition. Here will be shown exhibits covering the 400-year history, including the only surviving letter of Christopher Columbus in which he talks about his «discovery» of America, and the first Gutenberg Bible brought to the US.
