Excerpt from The Trap

The north of Fitshugh Square, in contrast with its curious surroundings, is a never-failing source of astonishment to the stranger unfamiliar with the peculiar neighborhood. three sides of the Square, a city park of drab, discouraging aspect, are little better than a slum, its salient features an array of flyblown boarding-houses, apartments, studios, sweatshop lofts, stale saloons and tenements; yet in spite of this, in spite, too, of the quarter's somewhat unsavory repute, the Square's isolated upper side is one of the most aristocratic sections of the city.

The long row of huge old-fashioned houses, each with its pretentious brick and marble front, its Colonial doorway, its battery of prim square-paned windows, survives as a relic of the day when the Square, all its four sides intact, was the hub and pivot of the town's smart-social life.
