      Separate itineraries for Burr, Mulligan, and Angelica would make me the happiest person I m a buff on general New York State history I live here so obviously , but early New York gets left behind for focus on the industrial age and onward.NYC was integral to the nation s formation, and I m excited to dive deeper.This also solidifies how satisfied my inner history brain is going to be when we move here in a few months.
