  • The Plaza: The Secret Life of America's Most Famous Hotel

    Journalist Julie Satow's thrilling, unforgettable history of how one illustrious hotel has defined our understanding of money and glamour, from the Gilded Age to the Go-Go Eighties to today's Billionaire Row. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-indent: 36.0px; font: 12.0px Arial} From the moment in 1907 when New York millionaire Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt strode through the Plaza Hotel's revolving doors to become its first guest, to the afternoon in 2007 when a mysterious Russian oligarch paid a record price for the hotel's largest penthouse, the eighteen-story white marble edifice at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street has radiated wealth and luxury. For some, the hotel evokes images of F. Scott Fitzgerald frolicking in the Pulitzer Fountain, or Eloise, the impish young guest who pours water down the mail chute. But the true stories captured in THE PLAZA also include dark, hidden secrets: the cold-blooded murder perpetrated by the construction workers in charge of building the hotel, how Donald J. Trump came to be the only owner to ever bankrupt the Plaza, and the tale of the disgraced Indian tycoon who ran the hotel from a maximum-security prison cell, 7,000 miles away in Delhi. In this definitive histor...

  • Starring the Plaza: Hollywood, Broadway, and High Society Visit the World's Favorite Hotel

    From the day it opened, on October 1, 1907, the lavish 19-story French Renaissance building on the southeast corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South was simply the grandest hotel in the world. It’s no wonder that the Plaza’s lavish interiors and exteriors have remained sought-after settings for films, TV shows, commercials―even music videos―as well as home to the most significant social events of their day.It’s no surprise that many of the films shot there have become beloved classics, from Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest; to everybody’s favorite tear-jerker, The Way We Were; to Neil Simon’s uproarious Plaza Suite and Barefoot in the Park. In those and dozens of others, the Plaza’s own special magic was stirred into Hollywood’s heady mix and the results were timeless.In Starring the Plaza, a labor of love conceived and created by pop-cultural historian Patty Farmer, the hotel shines in a new light: a Klieg light, as it were. Page after page of moments captured from movies, plays, TV shows, parties, premieres, and press events form a new kind of chronicle of New York’s favorite landmark. Readers will find all their favorite Plaza-on-film moments here―plus a few they might not have been aware of. There are even some Hollywood recreations of the p...

  • Are We Not Horses

    On Are We Not Horses Toronto-based, seven piece indie-folk ensemble Rock Plaza Central uses traditional instrumentation to sketch visions of an apocalyptic future where angels battle humans and a race of robotic horses falls into existential crisis. Guitar, violin, banjo, drums, bass and horns combine to bring to mind the psych-folk of Neutral Milk Hotel as well as the casual country-soul of The Band. Culled from the oral short stories of guitarist and novelist Chris Eaton, Are We Not Horses is surefooted in its unique, evocative approach, riding soundly on the back of Eaton's frighteningly emotive vocals and the band's spare-but-hummable melodies. This groundbreaking sci-folk song cycle speaks directly to the questions of essence and existence, but with a back-porch simplicity that leaves us all chanting the band's warm, comforting mantra... "We've Got a Lot to Be Glad For." Digipak.

  • The 1984 New Orleans World's Fair (Images of America)

    In 1984, the city of New Orleans hosted the last world's fair held in the United States. Conceived as part of an ambitious effort to revitalize a dilapidated section of the city and establish New Orleans as a year-round tourist destination, it took more than 12 years of political intrigue and design changes before the gates finally opened. Stretching 84 acres along the Mississippi River, the fair entertained more than seven million guests with a colorful collection of pavilions, rides, and restaurants during its six-month run. While most world's fairs lose money, the 1984 New Orleans World's Fair had the dubious distinction of going bankrupt and almost closing early. However, the $350-million investment did succeed in bringing new life to the area, which is now home to the city's convention center and a bustling arts district.

  • THE MEN THAT DON'T FIT IN - JFK RESEARCHER'S EXPANDED EDITION

    JFK Researcher Richard M. Hooke, "DISC Asset Rod Mac Kenzie's book describes an enormous U.S. Intelligence Operation / Hit, the seeds of which were planted years in advance, organized by the highest powers of the U.S. Government - Politicians, Agents, Businessmen, Bankers, Mafia Dons and Appointed and Elected Officials who, the evening of November 21, 1963, attended a bogus Pepsi Convention, held at The Dallas Cabana Motel, 'to get sugar prices down', providing them all with a mass alibi - while in reality, at approximately 10:15 pm, the conspirators car-pooled down Stemmons Blvd., to the 'VICTORY PARTY', at Clint Murchison's Dallas mansion, where they routinely signed off, as a group; on two affidavits, to have President John F. Kennedy shot to death, at 12:30 pm, on Elm Street in Dealey Plaza, the following day, November 22, 1963; not dissimilar to the way all the Senators, in ancient Rome, were required to shove their knives into Julius Caesar. Could it all be true? As I've read Mac Kenzie's manuscript, and questioned him, again and again, I've become completely convinced that is exactly the way it happened. And then, during the week following the assassination, at DISC Asset Jake Miranda's Circus Lounge restaurant, in the speak-easy catacombs behind the bar, the invisible wal...
