On Friday, November 15th, 1867, Charles A. Vivian, an English comic and singer, landed in New York via an English trading vessel from South Hampton. On the night of his arrival he dropped into the Star Hotel, a, Free and Easy kept by John Ireland on Lispenard street near Broadway. It was there that Chales Vivian met Richard R. Steirly, also of English birth, and a piano player at the Star Hotel. Vivian struck up an acquaintance with him and volunteered to sing a few songs. He made such an impression on John Ireland that the latter sent for his friend, Robert Butler, manager of the American Theater on Broadway. When Vivian sang for Butler, he made such a hit that he was engaged for a three week's run at the American. When closing time came at the Star Hotel, Steirly took Vivian around to his boarding house at 188 Elm Street, kept by Mrs. Giesman. It was there that he met William Bowron, who also knew Vivian in his native land. The streets in that section of New York have been re-plotted and their names changed so that the plot known as 188 Elm Street can now be found on LaFayette Street in the block between Broome and spring Streets. In 1939 the Council of the City of New York passed the following resolution: Be it resolved... that the two blocks remaining on Elm Street be known as Elk Street to pay tribute to the famous Order of Elks which was founded on that Street in the year 1867.
