Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Eugene O’Neill, James Thurber, and Ernest Hemingway, as your guide shares stories from their lives, as well as details about the architecture and history of Jazz Age New York City. Take in the three places where The New Yorker was created from 1925 to 1991, and get an inside take on the city's defining literary magazine.
