Example text

Unlike Newport, Rhode Island, or Long Island’s “Gold Coast,” both of which drew mostly WASPs, the Jersey Shore drew many upper-class Jewish families. Among these was the prominent banking family the Seligmans, as well as the Guggenheims, who were the Rothschilds’ next-door neighbors. Although Dorothy’s birth was a happy event in West End, the village would forever be tinged with sadness for the family. A month shy of young Dottie’s fifth birthday, her mother died at the house of coronary artery disease.

Two blocks away was her childhood home. Below her windows spread the beautiful park, where she could walk her dogs as she tried to figure out what to do with her life. 6 The Majestic was a luxury hotel built in 1894 by Albert Zucker. Twelve stories tall, it had private bowling alleys, a grand lobby, horse-drawn carriages out front, and a rooftop garden. With its six hundred rooms, it was one of the best places to live in the city, and being there gave young Dorothy a chance to observe firsthand many of the well-to-do people who would later resurface in her fiction and poetry.

No one knows better than she, she says, that its orange-and-black binding is all out of touch with the color scheme of the room; but, you see, she uses it for a telephone book and she is simply lost without it. Just what Mrs. Tippett does when she wants to look up the telephone number of her laundress or her grocer is not explained. The Majestic currently at 115 Central Park West is not the same building that Dottie resided in as a teenager. The Hotel Majestic was demolished at the end of the 1920s, and the current art deco building on the site opened in 1931.
