New York's First Theatrical Center The Rialto at Union Square, 1985 by John W. Frick presents Union Square and The Rialto as New York's primary theater district in the late 19th century. 

With detailed research into the important theaters of the time--Wallacks, 14th Street, Academy of Music, Tony Pastor's, Steinway Hall-- as well as the social and economic life surrounding theater activities--Delmonico's, Irving Place --Frick brings the theater and New York theater society fascinatingly alive. The 63 black and white photographs add tremendously to his presentation.
