The Manor (left) and No. 45 (right) begin construction, late 1926. All views look north up Prospect Place, today's Tudor City Place.
The tiny Tudor City rental cottage (bottom right corner) was nestled rather precariously beside the looming skyscraper.
May 6, 1927. No. 45 and the Manor will open several months later, on Sept. 30.
Winter, 1927. Christmas tree in place for the community's first holiday season.
