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.
