In honor of the local landmark’s 90th anniversary, Assouline pays homage to The Carlyle with quintessentially Manhattan moxie.
Jacqueline Kennedy and her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill, leaving The Carlyle, 1961.
A drink at Bemelmans… canapes at Café Carlyle… The Carlyle is an Upper East Side institution celebrated in countless films and novels—as well as in the hearts of New Yorkers. “There’s nowhere I love to go more in uptown New York than to The Carlyle!” says native New Yorker Sofia Coppola. “Especially for a holiday drink at Bemelmans or an intimate bite with friends in the Moroccan lounge beside it. Full of history, it’s so grown-up and glamorous.”
This fall Assouline celebrates the legendary landmark’s 90th anniversary with The Carlyle. Since the hotel’s opening in 1930, The Carlyle’s stylish suites have hosted presidents, royalty and Hollywood stars. Ready to celebrate in style, the notoriously posh property now boasts suites newly reimagined by designer Tony Chi—and the hotel honors its heritage with a fresh face and this equally tasteful tome written by James Reginato, author of Great Houses, Modern Aristocrats.
With a foreword by Lenny Kravitz and exclusive never-seen archival photographs, this starstudded book is sure to be the talk of the town.
