Description

Charles E. Ryan (1910-1997), a 38 year old "small town lawyer," wrote this account of his 1948 trip from Crawford County, Galion, Ohio, to New York City for a lecture course at the Practicing Law Institute. Largely narrative, the account also includes some postcards, maps, clippings, and pamphlets. After the train lost his suitcase for a day, Ryan enjoyed all that New York had to offer including the Statue of Liberty, Jack Dempsey's bar, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Yankee Stadium, Wall Street, Park Avenue, Central Park, La Guardia Airport, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and shopping at Macy's, Gimbels and Saks 5th Avenue. 12 years later, Ryan's son Chuck also visited New York for a job interview at Sperry Gyroscope Company in Great Neck. While Chuck's trip was far less exciting, Ryan noted in "New York was NOT like This: A Sequel" that he hoped Chuck would someday have a son who would document his own trip to New York, London, or even the moon. 78 pages.
