The events in 'Old New York' are set in the same New York as Wharton’s 'The Age of Innocence', making this a prequel. In 'Old New York' Wharton once again explores the manners and morals of 19th century New York upper-class society. Unsurprisingly Old New York is reminiscent of 'The Age of Innocence'. Once again Wharton is at her very best weaving stories full of truth and power. Some characters from 'The Age of Innocence' that you’ll meet again are Mrs. (Catherine) Manson Mingott, Sillerton Jackson, Mrs. Lemuel Struthers, Henry Van der Luyden. Return to a Time of Innocence!
