This is a simple enough book, with ragged type to indicate “olde worlde charme.” The neighborhood sounds olde worlde, if you don’t know New York, it might sound quaint, but it’s a busy spot. I’d say more, but the hotel’s own website is as informative as it is ugly, and has fascinating info on the site and history. It's a reminder of why some people love New York - the quantity of history packed into this single structure is quite amazing.
