Just a quick, fun post. I was watching Pawn Stars and a guy walked in with a canceled check signed by Carlo Gambino from 1962. It was from S.G.S. Associates, and you could see the address on the check: 141 East 44th Street. So I Google Earthed it…The Fitzpatrick Grand Hotel. I originally thought the flag out front was Italian--my bad, it's the Irish flag. Still, they're close (orange instead of a red stripe).
Thanks for visiting...
I'm happy to now offer my walking tours directly on my (old, but still living) blog....to help research my upcoming book, I've developed a number of unique walking tours for a number of Manhattan's neighborhoods and districts. Please click the button below to view, or to book, a tour.
(coming soon, Tribeca: The Most Beautiful Warehouses in the World.)
And please look forward one day to Factory Island: The Inordinately Complex, Unbelievably Rich History of New York City on the Island of Manhattan.
