Meet the Mayor

July 11, 2018


I woke up this morning to find the Boy Mayor of New York in the New York Times


the same Mayor who became the decider

in The Knish War on Rivington Street

Since the New York Times only reported the heated up knish war in January of 1916,

I had to find a solution...and  this man, Mayor John Purroy Mitchel popped up in my research. Yes, I even sent his picture in a high hat for the illustrator to use. His short but celebrated life would make a good novel...he's such

a man of his time.
