Book Discussion | A Block in Time: A New York City History at the Corner of Fifth Avenue and Twenty-Third Street (online)


The story of New York City, told through the prism of a single block, highlighting the lives of the people who lived and worked there. The biography of the block that is Bird's focus is the gridded rectangle bounded by 23rd and 24th streets and by Sixth Avenue on the west and Fifth Avenue and Broadway on the east, where they cross near Madison Square. From the story of Solomon Pieters, a former slave who was the first owner of the block, to Alexander "Clubber" Williams, a notorious police office of the 1870s, to Marietta Stevens, whose Sunday-night socials and scheming became the stuff of legend, Christiane Bird recounts how this block was home to "greed and generosity, guilt and innocence, extravaganza and degradation." This one Manhattan block may have intensified the changing forces in the city, but is also emblematic of New York as a whole. With author Christiane Bird.
