100 New Yorkers: A Guide to Illustrious Lives and Locations
Julia Holmes (au)
People become New Yorkers in different ways. They are born in the city, or they come to it from across the country or around the world, drawn by that magnetism that calls to people with great aspirations. This dazzling collection includes brief profiles of each New Yorker, followed by descriptions of the places they lived their day-to-day lives -- their favorite blocks, their homes, the stages on which they performed, & “their” cafes & restaurants. The fountain at the Plaza Hotel in which Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald made a splash, the Art Deco lounge where Billie Holiday sang “Strange Fruit,” Frank Sinatra’s hangout in Little Italy, & the street in Brooklyn where Truman Capote wrote “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” -- here are the places where the life of the city endures.
