-Cue's Guide to New York City


An extension of the New York City based Cue magazine, which published a weekly listing of arts and entertainment events, this work is designed “to give you a selected list of the best things to see, the best places to go, and the most amusing things to do.” Baseball was covered under the “Amusements” section of the guide among other sports like golf, polo, tennis, and racing. The short, two-sentence section on “Big League Baseball” lists the Giants’ Polo Grounds in Manhattan, Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, and the Dodgers’ Ebbet’s Field in Brooklyn. The presence of a major league baseball team was a sign of cultural success for a city, so New York City hosting three teams and stadiums was a significant point of comparison with other urban centers.
