The laborers who built New York City

Morgan writes – “I read this article in yesterday’s Times about the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen. The group has been around for over 100 years, and still operates a massive library that focuses on trades and crafts, as well as a free trade school. I went by the yesterday afternoon; the library is still there, a tremendous resource for New York based makers!”Link.
