The Carlyle

I recently came across this article in Departures magazine about how 90 years on this old world hotel continues to charm even a younger crowd and has such a storied history. Ever a favorite of JFK,  Mick Jagger,  The Reagans etc this slice of  Upper East Side culture will be the subject of an upcoming documentary titled ” Only at the Carlyle ” coming next year.  Most folks who have ever stayed or visited usually have vivid memories of a special evening or an act they caught there in the Cafe Carlyle.  I have fond memories of seeing Bobby Short many times and last few years seeing the legend Herb Alpert play in this intimate room adorned with murals and old world waiters evoking a time that was. Visit one day if you can.
