This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from The Chatwal hotel in New York, a landmark building that was once the famous Lambs Club (and is now housing Geoffrey Zakarian’s Lambs Club restaurant). It’s got a wealth of history on 44th street on the west side of Manhattan and is right in the center of the Theater District. Joining Peter will be historian Elizabeth Bradley, who tells the great story of the lovers and the murder of Stanford White, and the very first “trial of the century.” Kevin Fitzpatrick, author of Dorothy Parker’s New York and Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide, reveals how many speakeasies were once on 44th street (whatever number you guess, you’ll be way too low), and talks about special secrets of the neighborhood.
Ashish Verma stops by to talk about how the hotel owners worked to maintain the landmark status of the building as well as maintaining its architectural style, and Nicole Morris and Audrey Romanola, Spa Directors at the Red Door in The Chatwal, speak about the wellness experience and the urban sanctuary the spa provides.
Additionally, The New York Times‘ Seth Kugel will discuss the $100/day trip challenge, and Chatwal Chefs Arthur Barrette and Eric Haugen reveal the secrets of sourcing amazing New Brunswick salmon. There’s all of this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from The Chatwal in New York.
