Synopsis

Joseph Young was acknowledged as one of the five or six major city builders in boomtime Florida. From palmetto, bare ground and water in 1920 he created Hollywood By-the-Sea with an elegant Beaux Arts plan of circles and lakes, calling his creation a ""City Beautiful,"" an ideal first propounded by Daniel Burnham of Chicago. The fine bones of Young's original city are the heart of it today. Young's skills included a rare talent for publicity and a knack for making and spending millions--supported by an immense personal charm that is still remembered decades after his death. This first full biography of Young traces his start as city builder in turn-of-the-century California where new cities blossomed and were ballyhooed--thence to Indianapolis, home of Carl Fisher who developed Miami Beach, on his creation of Hollywood and Port Everglades, and then to his Adirondack resort, ending with his dreams to expand Hollywood, fulfilled after his early death.
