        Could they mean the Murray Hill neighborhood in Manhattan? Now it is known for being filled by frat boys but maybe back then it was a German neighborhood?Report

        One of the definitions of “German” is: “a complex dance in which one couple leads the other couples through a variety of figures and there is a continual change of partners.” (Like a cotillion).

        If Murray Hill was ritzy area that had such dances, then a Bowery bum would be out of place there.Report
