His first real work was a book titled “A History of New York: From the Beginning of the World to the end of the Dutch Dynasty” that was published in 1809, the year he left the law field. Irving wrote the book using a pen name of Deidrich Knickerbocker, which is where the New York Knicks get their name from.

This gave Charles opportunities to walk around the town with his father and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the area.
