10 Things Still Made in America
Steinway (LVB) pianos, considered by many musicians to be the world's finest, have been handcrafted in New York since 1853.
The company traces its roots to 1836, when German cabinet Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg built his first piano in this kitchen.
Within just 10 years, he would build 482 more pianos. In 1850, Steinweg and his family emigrated to the U.S. and in 1853, after changing the family name to Steinway, he and his family founded Steinway & Sons in a Manhattan loft on Varick Street. The company has remained in the city ever since.By 2000, Steinway had sold 550,000 pianos. In addition to its U.S.-made grand pianos, the company has the less expensive Boston and Essex brand pianos, which are made overseas.
