Creating a Life in the Big Apple

Show Summary Details


After his final performance in an opera in Cincinnati, Niles travelled to Wilton. A few months later, he moved to the city permanently, and settled into a basement apartment in Washington Place. He attempted to risk letters of introduction from Italy, for him to have access to the New York publishing houses of Charles Scribner's Sons, Carl Fischer, and Gustave Schirmer. Niles was very lucky because he was interviewed, and that gave him an opportunity to write a series of articles for Scribner's Monthly magazine and a collection of spirituals for Carl Fischer. He dedicated much of his time in New York to writing stories and books, and arranging music.
