This was a charming tale. A bright, creative boy dreams a dream in the last quarter of the 19th century. It is a time when America, and New York City in particular, is growing and transforming. We watch as the young boy becomes a man, and his dream unfolds. It is a tale of vision, and of vision meeting reality. It is full of imagination and optimism, tempered with the frustrations that emerge when dreams and realities meet.
