    Excerpt from The New York Giants: An Informal History This was New York in the elegant eighties and these were the Giants, fashioned in elegance, playing on the Polo Grounds, then at 110 Street and Fifth Avenue. It was the New York of the brownstone house and the gaslit streets, of the top hat and the hansom cab, of oysters and champagne and perfecto cigars, of Ada Rehan and Oscar Wilde and the young John L. Sullivan. It also was the New York of the Tenderloin and the Bowery, of the slums and the sweat shops, of goats grazing among shan ties perched on the rocky terrain of Harlem. The Giants, however, were the darlings of the brown stone set and drew the carriage trade. They were owned by John B. Day, a wealthy manufacturer, whose factory was on the lower East Side but who lived in a brownstone house, were a top hat and a frock coat, carried a cane, and rode in his own coach. They were managed by James Mutrie, who lived in a sedate hotel in the Twenties, wore a top hat and frock coat, carried a cane, and rode in hansom cabs. Their players were cut to their pattern, so that, gazing on their likenesses in fading photographs, you might be tempted to think they had been chosen as much for their looks as for their ability as ball players.
