Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

How fast did Manhattan grow in the 1920s? Well, during that period, a new building was constructed in New York (on average) every hour. Historian Miller vividly conveys that hustle and bustle which created the city that defined modernity in the 20th century. Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, Jimmy Walker, Helena Rubenstein, Duke Ellington, Flo Ziegfeld, and Elizabeth Arden are just a few of the people that are profiled in this paean to the birth of the New York City that we know today.
