"Apartment Dwellers on New Year's Eve"
Dedicated to the Richardson Foundation
No one who lives in a big-city apartment house has to be content with his own observance of New Year's. He takes part willingly or not in parties above, below, and across the way. What interested John Falter was the possibility of showing the New Year’s arrival as it touched seven or eight homes, all in compact layers. He seems to have covered all ages, from the baby to old age, in the person of the old gentleman alone except for his hunting trophies. The scene is more or less based on Gramercy Park, New York, where Falter occupies a second-story apartment. It's our opinion that at the hour in question the old gent's moose head probably is making more sense than most of the more animate characters.
