"As The City Watched" is a carousel book depicting the sequence of events of the 1897 Bradley-Martin Ball, the most expensive and extravagant party held at the original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. As the 20th century neared, the Waldorf-Astoria hotel became Manhattan's "theatre in the round" for the wealthiest of celebrities and their wild parties.
