I loved this book. It is a collection of fascinating vignettes of Manhattan in the 1920s. This covers everything from Jimmy Walker to gangsters to Texas Guinan to William J Wilgus, the architect of Grand Central Terminal, to beauty entrepreneurs to Fred F French & Irwin S Chanin to Walter Chrysler and his beloved skyscraper. Also included are "Roxy' Rothafel & his magnificent movie palace & the radio boys, Sarnoff & Paley, Jack Dempsey & Gene Tunney, Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig, Duke Ellington & Flo Ziegfeld.
