"At the Plaza"$65.00
For almost one hundred years, The Plaza has mirrored the social history of Manhattan: its tastes in design, entertainment, restaurants and accommodations, as well as its adjustment to Prohibition, the Great Depression, two World Wars, the Cold War, women's rights, smokers' rights, animals' rights and British rock-and-roll. The first guests to sign the register, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, set the standard for the long procession of luminaries that followed -- Mark Twain, Diamond Jim Brady, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Marlene Dietrich, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the Beatles, among many others.
In At the Plaza, Curtis Gathje, the hotel's official historian, has compiled a tremendous collection of photographs and vignettes chronicling the colorful history of a building, an institution, and a city.
