About the Book
Peer into the windows of 927 Broadway and experience the evolution of the city from open fields to the development of the grid pattern throughout Manhattan. Home to a printing press, chocolate manufacturer, Lager beer saloon, dressmaking specialties, piano retailer, and oyster bar, 927 Broadway proves to be the perfect representation of what the city is all about. Originally flanked by shanties and subsequently by a theatre, hotels, and thriving companies, No. 927 has witnessed the city's transformation. Read its story through businesses, occupants, and social events such as the political uprising denouncing loyalty to President Lincoln led by a state senator during the Civil War.
