I didn’t take my camera to NYC with me because it’s so big and bulky, but Katie had hers and we both have camera phones. So these aren’t the best pictures ever, but they’re good enough to give you a decent idea of our weekend.
This post will be pictures of the public spaces of the Waldorf Astoria. If you have any imagination at all it’s easy to see it all the way it was back in the day. My friend, Tina’s grandmother worked there back then. Can you imagine the stories she could tell? So elegant and regal. I wish I would have gotten a picture of the doorman in all his finery but Katie was being exceptionally teenagery and that would have been, like, so totally embarrassing.
The hallway to the stalls and the inside of a stall.
The beautiful chandelier in the Grande Lobby.
Beautiful mahogany panelled elevators.
