The story of the old New York & Harlem Railroad began way back in 1831 when New York City authorized construction of a horse-drawn streetcar system for Manhattan Island that evolved over the decades into a major commuter railroad connecting New York State's upstate communities with the City. 

This new book is not a dedicated narrative of the New York Central's Harlem Division, but rather a photographic look at the history of this railroad that was the driving force in developing the regions along the eastern border of New York State from New York City to the heart of the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts. 

Several noted photographers and railroad historians have opened their collections and have provided nearly 600 photographs, maps and timetables, including 32 pages in color.
