A fact filled book about a immigrant family that profited from the fur trade and invested in New York real estate to become the richest people in the world. With such an interesting subject, I just wish the author had put a little more spark into his writing. When the Astors Owned New York is a small look at the powerful people that reigned over America during the Gilded Age.
