A discussion of the Great Fire of 1835 -- which destroyed nearly 700 buildings in lower Manhattan -- and the forces that transformed New York from a large unruly metropolis during the early years of the 19th century. All the changes that occurred during those years helped make possible the consolidation of the five boroughs and the creation of Greater New York City in 1898.
