New York City is a 1920’s Kinda Town

Photos from Governors Island Jazz-Age Lawn Party / Desmitten and Kptyson

Summer in New York City seems to be making a run at becoming the new Paris in the 20’s. There is the Jazz-Age Lawn Party that took place last weekend on our beloved Governors Island.  There are numerous Jazz Festivals, including the Jazz in July Summer Festival.

New York Times writer Lily Koppel wrote a fantastic book that got Hollywood’s attention, The Red Leather Diary. imageThe book chronicles a chapter in a young women’s life in New York City during the Roaring Twenties, a life Lily discovered in diaries found in discarded steamer trunks.

And this weekend on Saturday, Jun 20, is the Vintage Summer Ball, a spring celebration of the music and dances of the Ragtime Era, where period attire is encouraged. For sartorial suggestions, you might want to check out The Sartorialist, who has been posting photos of Ragtime Era fashion all week.
