New York City

“So here we are in New-York. To a Frenchman the aspect of the city is bizarre and not very agreeable. One sees neither dome, nor bell tower, nor great edifice, with the result that one has the constant impression of being in a suburb. In its centre the city is built of brick, which gives it a most monotonous appearance. The houses have neither cornices, nor balustrades, nor portes-cocheres. The streets are very badly paved, but sidewalks for pedestrians are to be found in all of them. We had all the trouble in the world getting lodgings because at this time of year strangers abound; and we wanted to find a pension rather than an inn. At length we succeeded in establishing ourselves admirably in the most fashionable street, called Broadway." Quote from Alexis’s Journal.

  • "Boston is a city of sixty thousand souls. Its harbour is magnificent; it is situated on the middle of an island, and you reach it from every side by means of causeways which have been constructed across the water. Much less commercial bustle is to be seen there than in New-York, but the general aspect of the town is much more agreeable. The latter lies on a flat terrain and offers to the eye, no matter from which side it is observed, but a single row of houses. Boston, on the contrary, is built on uneven and mountainous ground, in such a way that to the observer at a certain distance, it presents some charming views. It contains many private houses constructed with taste and elegance; [yet] in the matter of public edifices, I see but the government house [State House] in the least remarkable. . . ."

Beaumont (Pierson, 351)

  • After a day on the water we arrived within a league of a small town named Wheeling."

Beaumont (Pierson 545)

Wheeling is a small town that at the time did not have many attractions for Alexis to record.

  • Population= 31,419
  • Nickname= The Friendly City
  • Third most populated city in U.S
  • Alexis Tocqueville never visited Chicago during his expedition so there are no journal entries about Chicago from his expedition.
