How might America be different if the Erie Canal had not been built?

I think America might be different if it hadn’t been built because New York would not have become our financial capital. The struggle to find cost effective ways of shipping bulk goods would have continued, keeping the economy from growing quicker.

  1. It just might have taken a little longer for NYC to be our financial capital. Since its beginning, New Yorkers have concentrated on making money.
