Happy birthday F Scott Fitzgerald!
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald with wife Zelda, from 1921
"I began to like New York, the racy, adventurous feel of it at night and the satisfaction that the constant flicker of men and women and machines gives to the restless eye. I liked to walk up Fifth Avenue and pick out romantic women from the crowd and imagine that in a few minutes I was going to enter into their lives, and no one would ever know or disapprove.” -- Nick Carraway, The Great Gatsby
Trace Nick's walk through Manhattan at Walking Off The Big Apple -- from Yale Club "down Madison Avenue past the old Murray Hill Hotel, and over 33rd Street to the Pennsylvania Station"
