The New York Times profiles St. George Hotel Tower resident Craig Meachen and his search for memorabilia of the landmark building:
New York Times: Resurrecting…: “The ballroom was where the annual Brooklyn Heights debutante balls were held,” a member writes. Another recalls “clamoring outside with a huge throng of people to get a glimpse of President Lyndon Johnson, who was attending some affair” at the St. George.
“So many Americans trace their roots to Brooklyn,” said Mr. Meachen, “which means probably around one in eight Americans had a significant family event that happened here.”
