They say that if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere, but what about New York City in 1789?
Life back then was hard: homes lacked indoor plumbing and were insufficiently heated, bathing was a luxury and most people had to work from dawn until dusk. As if that weren't enough, many Western countries were in a state of extreme upheaval, as the United States strove to elect its first president and Congress, Brazil fought for independence from Portugal and the French Revolution commenced.
