The glamour, the music, the fashion, the mobsters and more from the 1920s

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 masterpiece novel “The Great Gatsby” will once again come to life on the silver screen next week.  The latest film adaptation of the novel stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire.  The movie promises roaring 20s' glamour, excess and excitement, but we thought, why should Hollywood have all the fun?  

On this week's Cityscape, we’re looking back on the 1920s in New York City – the music, the fashion, the dancing, and even the mobsters.
