1820 Transportation Costs
Transportation Costs from New York to Buffalo

I am always interested in the nearly miraculous drop in prices over the last two centuries. The link above states that the writer spent $30.00 going from Buffalo to Albany by stage. It took ten days.

According to the Currency Convertor you can find in the Links on this page, that is about $530 in 2005 dollars
