Is no longer any Park Row Well you can’t keep a good paper downtown The quip has Its value in the fact that The Tribune followed The Herald and The Times ln moving uptown The Herald abandoned Its office at Ann street and Broadway ln 1893 to go to Thirty-fifth atreet and Broadway which It named Herald Square and Th Times left Park Row for Forty-second street and Broadway about 1904 When I first reached New York City about 1888 The World was on Park Row halfway between Broadway and the building with the gold dome that Mr Pulitzer afterwards built a half block north at the end of the Brooklyn

building which was also occupied by The Morning Journal Albert Pullt zer’s paper which was bought later by William Randolph Hearst In the Immediate vicinity of Park Row were The Herald The Mall and Express The Evening Post The Star The States-Zitung The Morning Telegraph Dally America The Recorder The German Herold and a score of weekly publications Including Robert Bonner’s Ledger The Family
