High Society explores the intrigue of New York's upper-class society and culture. From Greenwich Village and the Sugar House to Stone Street, author Nick Foulkes unravels Manhattan's past, starting in the early seventeenth century and leading up to the present. With stories of the Vanderbilt, Frick, Morgan, and Astor families and the restaurants, playhouses, galleries, and night clubs where they socialized. The narrative weaves the political, social, and literary moments of the eras, delivering a spectacle of culture beside a poignant selection of photography.
