Think we’ve got it bad today? 19th century NYC was littered with hoaxes, tall tales, ultra-fake news–and the masses who fell for it all. Social historian Tom Miller (aka the Daytonian in Manhattan blogger) reaches into his mesmerizing bag o’ history to bring us tales of giant man-bats, sapphire temples and city streets overtaken by wild animals.

Author Constance Rosenblum introduces us to one of America’s most talked-about personalities, Peggy Hopkins Joyce. Although little remembered today, Peggy was the quintessential gold digger: think Anna Nicole Smith meets Kim Kardashian in the 1920’s. A Ziegfeld Girl and occasional stage and film actress, Peggy had no discernible talent besides glamorous looks and a flair for self-promotion. She did manage to find “love” with several millionaires and even a count, but it was her scandalous divorce from husband No. 3 (of six) that made her an international tabloid sensation and the original modern celebrity — famous for being famous.
