Summary
In the 1920s, New York goes on the "gaudiest spree" in history. F. Scott Fitzgerald becomes the spokesman for the era. Modern American culture is born as the radio becomes available, and jazz music is played in Harlem. Many are attracted to the glittery, fast-paced life in New York and others are appalled. Al Smith fights a losing battle in the 1928 presidential election. The decade ends with the massive Crash of '29. New York goes on a skyscraper building spree that ends with the dedication of the Empire State Building
