New York City - The Syrian Quarters
To one just come from the Occident, from somewhere in New York, a descent upon the Syrian quarters is like a dream travel.
New York City And The Greeks
From Syria to Greece is not a very long journey. It can be made overland or by sea. The route I took was the land route, although the sea route is just as fascinating, and perhaps even shorter.
On The East Side Of New York
One would like to think of the Jewish quarter in New York, the East Side especially, as if it were Palestine.
New York City And Chinatown
In the morning little Chinese children play in front of the gilded pagoda-like house-fronts; children with faces like cameos cut in amber, as unreal to the immediate surroundings as if they were little dolls that had been stuck in for bizarre effect.
New York City - Little Italy
In former years, before the first generation of Italians had somehow acclimatized itself to conditions, a night visit through Little Italy was not a very safe one.
New York City - Greenwich Village
The Village has not been made after a definite plan like most of the other streets above Canal Street, which have been laid out in advance by the city engineers, but it has grown.
New York City - The Gipsy Quarters
To speak of Gipsy quarters is, however, a bit dangerous, for there are Gipsy quarters only in the winter.
New York City - Harlem
Until ten years ago Harlem was a district of New York, a suburban section within the city, inhabited by second-generation Germans and German Jews.
New York City And The Balkan Countries
Suppose you want to go from Africa, in Harlem, to the Balkan countries. One might very profitably do the trip on foot and thus hurriedly pass by many remarkable buildings.
New York City And The Spanish
Many, many years ago, I hurried through the Balkans to Spain. Because of the urgency of my being at Madrid on a certain day, I had no leisure to stop anywhere en route.
New York City And The French
When one says France one generally means Paris, though to the initiated many the two things are far from synonymous.
New York City And The Germans
Forgetting that almost a sixth of the population of this country is of German extraction, we have gone on ranting, school-boy fashion. The friends of the Germans exaggerated their cultural value, and their enemies disparaged it.
New York City And The Hungarians
The Hungarian district takes a bit of Second Avenue as its main street, from Ninth Street to Eighteenth and Nineteenth Streets, and then, extending eastward, it sinks below the lower avenues, A and B, and with few interruptions runs along in the same way to Sixtieth Street.
New York City And The Czechs
Up to the beginning of the war, if any one had asked where Czechoslovakia was in Europe, even the best student of geography would have looked at his questioner doubting his sanity.
New York City And The Polish
Poles came to New York virtually as early as the Jews. In 1659 the Dutch colonists of Manhattan hired a Polish schoolmaster for the education of the youth of the community.
New York City And The Armenians
In 1863 there were about ten Armenians in America, six of whom lived in New York City. In 1875 there were about seventy, all living in New York.
New York City And Scotland
Statistics show that there are some fifty-four thousand people of Scotland in this city. According to the number of people of Scotch origin one meets here, there, and every-where, there seem to be fully ten times that number.
New York City Nitelife
NEW YORK has been called a great many things... Those of us who live by and with New York, to whom the Metropolis gives pleasure as well as a livelihood, do not think of it in any such terms.
New York City - The Old Time Restaurants
ORDINARIES, coffee houses, taprooms, cafes, pubs, cabarets, speakeasies, or restaurants under whatever name, have been important in New York history from its very beginnings.
New York City - Cafe Society Or Up From The Speakeasies
Prohibition spawned a new type of racketeer in the bootlegger but, paradoxically, also brought into being a new set of restaurateurs who were to create some of New York's finest restaurants.
New York City - Continental Cuisine
By continental cuisine is usually meant French and Italian, or French or Italian menus, many of which are indistinguishable.
New York City - The Cabarets
The Latin Quarter, located in a triangular building on W. 48th St. that is sandwiched in between Broad-way and Seventh Ave., is the oldest and, with only two exceptions, the last of the great, glittering cabarets that once lined Broadway.
New York City - The Honky Tonks
The Monaco, at 133 W. 52nd St. is reminiscent of the vanishing theatre restaurants as these honky tonks call themselves which up to 1956 lined that part of West 52nd St.
New York City - The Broadway Beat
Lindy's, at Broadway and 51st St., noted for its place in the life of Damon Runyon, whose characters still frequent the spot; its cheesecake; and its very independent waiters who have their own notion of what you should eat and don't hesitate to tell you.
New York City Jazz Joints And Restaurants With Jazz
The Roundtable, at 151 E. 50th St., is the town's newest and most pretentious restaurant with jazz, a comparative new development in cafes, where today you get a good meal in addition to hearing top jazz artists.
New York City - Steak Row
There are more good steak houses in one small area of New York, specifically between Lexington and Second Aves. in the East 40's, than you'll find in the average city of a half million population.
New York City - The Supper Clubs
THE Blue Angel, at 152 E. 55th St., is the brain child of Herbert Jacoby, a tall, slightly cadaverous French-man, who set a new pattern for New York nitelife when he opened an upstairs bistro called Le Ruban Bleu on E. 56th St. in 1937.
Greenwich Village
GREENWICH Village is described in the dignified American Guide series as the Latin Quarter, the Bohemia of New York, where Free Love, Freudianism, Socialism, imagist poetry and fads of all shades have waxed and waned.
New York City - Yorkville Of Old World Schmaltz They Like To Sing
AT the turn of the century there were so many Germans living in the neighborhood around Tompkins Square, in an area bounded by Avenues A and B and 7th and 10th Sts., that the community became known as Little Germany.
Harlem And New York City
A TIN PAN ALLEY song hit was a major factor in changing the face of New York geographically and establishing Harlem as an amusement center.
New York City - Around The World In 80 Dinners
OF the 22,000 eating places in New York City, a small percentage caters to 32 nationalities who have been absorbed into the city but still prefer their own original native dishes.
