Art Deco embodied all that was hip, progressive, modern, and cultured. Art Deco was the result of a strong economy, industrial progress, social change, and idealistic values. The spirit that drove the Art Deco movement is most clearly exhibited in the American cities that experienced dramatic growth in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Through an examination of the architecture of those cities, many cultural inferences can be drawn in regards to this period of American history.

New York was the hotbed of all things glamorous and innovative, making the city the subject of daydreams and an ultimate destination point.
