I want to learn about garbage removal in early New York.

I recently visited Dead Horse Bay
in Brooklyn and was amazed. I also love Luc Sante's Low Life
- a book about crime in New York from the 1840s to the 1920s. Can Metafilter recommend any similar books (or podcasts or articles) about early efforts at sanitation in NYC?
