    Entertaining Read

    This was a daily sale book for a dollar, but it intrigued me. I am so glad I picked it up! This was an entertaining history of New York City life from the late 1800’s through 1979, the time the book was published. The author did quite a bit of research as well as interviews with residents and staff, resulting in a fascinating look at this New York icon and its residents. The builder was Edward Clark, partner of Isaac Singer, of the Singer sewing machine fame. It began as a luxury apartment building, with service beyond any that can be imagined today. It received its name because it was so far west, it may as well have been in the Dakota Territory. Over the years, the Dakota has been home to many notables, celebrities and elitists. Yet I found the most interesting person of all was someone I had never heard of before, Mihajlo (Michael) Pupin. Dr. Pupin was born in a small rural village in what is now Serbia. At 16, he came to the U.S. with 5 cents and a dream. He worked, went to college and became a physicist and mathematician, a pioneer and inventor, an educator and philanthropist. I found the books excerpts from an interview with him absolutely fascinating and had to research him further. That is an amazing tale on its own. An interesting side note, reading this not quite 40-year old book showcased the changes in our society in the last 40 years. Yes, we still have elitists and snobs and we always will,, but we have advanced a long way in 40 years. This was a very interesting read.
