In the latter half of the 19th century, Park Row (formerly named Chatham Street) had the nickname “Newspaper Row” for the large number of periodicals with offices located on the Lower Manhattan street, from The New York Times to the New York Tribune and New York World. Park Row was also home to the New Yorker Staats-Zeitung, a German-language newspaper founded in 1834 that had one of the largest circulation rates in the city at the time. The street also had other German-language publications such as some in our gallery, as noted in the image below:
