In The Wood And The Graver, Eichenberg recounts that this engraving, one of four iconic studies (also including "The Aquarium", "City Lights", and "The Steps") of New York life that arose from his first impressions as a newly-arrived immigrant, was inspired by friends who urged him to create such images while the freshness of the American experience still remained strong.
