And here’s a terrific website which purports to show the age of all of the buildings in New York City. (I don’t know how they established the ages–was it the date of the issuance of a certificate of occupancy, or a building permit? So, with that one big caveat–“he might have been wrong”–this website shows that the building dates from 1913.)
If you’re not familiar with New York, good luck finding the location! Start at the lower right corner of Central Park, go SSW along 5th Avenue to 42nd Street, and then east a block and a half to Vanderbilt Avenue. If you roll your mouse over the map, windows will pop up with the buildings’ addresses and ages.
Should I go check the building directory to see if the NAML is still there?
“They [the LDS missionary] here used all sorts of arguments to obtain converts to their polygamous faith,” Secretary Matthews charges. “We have also ascertained that the good-looking young Mormon missionaries are devoting the larger part of their energies to women, the assumption being that wherever women go the men will follow. Some of these women after conversion will be colonized in the Western states, where they will be furnished with husbands.”
