Hey Friends. Corrections/clarifications: 1. yes indeed the Erie Canal was built way after the british left. I should have made that clear. 2. "Bronx" isn't dutch. i must have been thinking "Harlem" and should have double checked. Whoops 3. (Old) York has lots to do with water and regularly floods (thank you all for telling me about that. I had no idea!) 4. I wont apologize for misspellings cuz being pedantic about typos is not a good use of our time here on earth. im dyslexic and will mispell things until the day I die. If you can't handle it, maybe best not to watch my videos? 5. k im done. Im doing my best with these vids and sometimes mis things here and there. that will likely always happen as long as I don't have a team to help fact check and comb thru everything I write. Hope you learned a bit about the growth of NYC! -Johnny

I LOVE your videos and I am making a comic for a class of mine because I got really into learning about the Delta Works project in the Netherlands from your video! To people that are upset about the typo, I don't find misspelling offensive at all. People make mistakes and we all know what he meant to write and say. He made a beautiful video and tries to learn about some really cool stuff and share it with us and does so in a really entertainin way. I'm not gonna get upset over an extra E when I can see all the work being done right infront of me. Have a little empathy friends.

What New Yorkers will never admit is that they felt extremely threatened that rebuilt Chicago (the 2nd city)was the fastest growing city in the world in the 19th century. And becoming the most important city in America. That they annexed Brooklyn so this combination could combat Chicago economically.

New York - clue is in the name. London's metropolitan area is spread over an area only slightly smaller than New York's and but New York's central area is slightly smaller than central London. You could also make this video about Tokyo. Tall buildings make size deceptively larger to your eye when the area of a square can be the same. The one with tall buildings is perceived as larger. Looks impressive, no denying that, but NYC is no longer a long way ahead of others, but merely in a pack, albeit at the top of that pack but not the way it was just 30 years ago. Worth noting, the largest cities in area are in Japan and the English speaking countries of the USA, UK, Australia (but low population relative to size) due to suburban living spreading over stupid size areas. China goes up, but not out as far as one might imagine. Population wise, nothing touches Tokyo - they are in a league of their own!

4:47 the gratuitous anti-white statements begin. Indians DID own land, but not individually. Tribes owned land, and they were extremely territorial about it, tribes were constantly fighting over territory. That's why the Manhattan Indians could sell land to the Dutch. Never mind the fact that they lived in Jersey.

Cities don't grow, or not grow, for material reasons. New York City didn't grow because of the Erie Canal. The Erie Canal was created because of New York City. The City's culture made possible political and financial interaction that simply did not happen elsewhere. NYC's unusually open and diverse cultural explains its growth. All the things John mentions here are effects, not causes. Culture is the cause.

Like most Americans you say "world" and mean "America". NYC was certainly not the "World's factory" in the 1800s when up until WWI the UK economy was bigger than the US. And the global economic center in the 19th century was certainly more London than NYC.

Would be great if the title was 'Why New York City is so Fit to Support systems of Capitalism and Colonialism." Felt a bit like a perspective guided mainly by the history of Western economics, with little attention given to the effects of those economic pursuits, nor any other contributing factors to the cultural significance of the city. This not only gives me a vibe that this wasn't thoroughly researched, it also serves to glorify the economic systems that have made the city a hostile and discriminatory environment for many inhabitants (including immigrants, which he esensentializes while attempting to celebrate them), and overlooks the many cultural, artistic, and political contributions that resistance to such inequalities have garnered within the city. Comes off as tone deaf and insignificant. Oh well.
