New York City Seal debate


 800055. New York Public LibraryDid anyone happen to catch this article in the New York Times on Monday on the Seal of New York City? It reminded me of a post that I put up about the city flag which, as I was corrected by Michael Miscione, displays the city seal not the state seal. The article provides a background to the debate and politics surrounding the date on the New York City seal, presently listed as 1625. The article also mentions helpful resources that we have here in the Milstein Division such as Seal and flag of the city of New York, The encyclopedia of New York City, The island at the center of the world, and Gotham: a History of New York City to 1898. Care to join the debate?
