Antithesis

The summer (1960) I graduated from high school in NYC, I worked as a waiter at the New Edgewood Hotel in Loch Sheldrake, across the lake from Brown's. It could not be more opposite, in every way, from the magnificent Stevensville.

Amenities concealed

When not in use, the borscht bar reposes behind the mirrored doors on the left.

Mad Men

Waiting for Don Draper to walk in with a cocktail in his hand.

Digging through the rubble

While digging around the web and viewing urb-ex pics of the other hotels that succumbed to changing times, I also stumbled across this commercial for the Stevensville.
