Throwing Your Hat Into The Ring (NYC Mayor Jimmy Walker)

Notorious NYC mayor Jimmy Walker (L). The son of Irish immigrants, he was raised in Greenwich Village & cut his teeth as a song writer on tin pan alley. A product of Tammany Hall he ran as a champion for the common man. He passed the Walker Bill which legalized boxing in NYC. He represented the roaring twenties- elegance & excess. Known as the night mayor, he spent more time at the central park hotspot "The Casino" than city hall. He referred to it as the "High-Hat Hut"...The publics tolerance for his lavish style diminished w/ the arrival of the Great Depression. He is a real character in a city w/ no shortage of characters.
