Fulton's steamboat was built on the East River at the ship yards of Charles Brownne. After disappointments and delays, Fulton left New York on his steamboat for Albany on August 17, 1807. He made the trip in thirty-two hours and successfully demonstrated to the world the possibilities of steam navigation.
