G.Pick out information about the Ritz: 1. Architect: Emery Roth 2. Opening Data: October 1926 3. Precise Location: The Corner of Fifty‐Seventh Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan H.Shape B I.Architecture/Object Comparison: Telescope and Wedding Cake J.Quote showing why zoning law of 1916 was voted: “Concerned about the diminishing sunlight and fresh air in the canyon like streets created by the closely massed skyscrapers of lower Manhattan…” K.1. Choices for Architects after zoning law of 1916 and Justification: oB and C: “The city placed a limit on the maximum height and bulk of tall buildings.” “Height Limits were based upon the width of the street”, if the building exceeded the limit, the upper stories “above it had to be set back”, adjusting the shape. 2. What made the Ritz Tower exceptional (Quote)? o“The Ritz Tower […] forty‐one stories high. The tallest inhabited building in the world, it dominated the skyline of Midtown Manhattan…” L.Two Reasons why rich people wanted to live in such building, justify with quotes: The rich people wanted to live in skyscrapers because it “was a new way of living for the rich”, it was a metaphor for being above the common people: they were “higher than anyone had ever lived”. These buildings also expressed a “shoot‐for‐the‐moon spirit” that the rich obviously had. M.‘The shoot‐for‐the‐moon spirit”: What does this phrase suggest about the 1920s and the attitude of people at that time? Explain and justify with textual elements. This phrase suggests that the overall tone of the 1920s and the attitude of the people during that time was hopeful and aspirational. It was the end of World War 1, and people were hopeful for a bright future. Through the use of terms like “aspirations”, “dominated”, and “unexcelled”, the text helps shape the definition of the shoot‐for‐the‐ moon spirit and its hopeful connotation.

greener will allow not only a more harmonious urbanization but it will also be artistic in nature. P.Compare and contrast the visions of progress given in the three documents. In document 1, Eddie and Beck view the industrialization period to be negative progress, as New York is losing its farms and wildlife to the new bustling city life. Document 2 is founded on the roaring 20s outlook, where bigger is better. Document two shows that skyscrapers were a progressive movement. In document 3, we see a combination of both document 1 and 2. There is the value of nature and urbanization. Progress in this document is one where urbanization and nature become circular and live harmoniously.
