See Below THE CARLYLE Introduction by James Reginato, Foreword by Lenny Kravitz Cover illustration by Kera Till There’s nowhere I love to go more in Uptown New York than to The Carlyle! 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. These are brand new, direct FROM Assouline and packaged as they came from them! If there is one landmark that encapsulates the spirit of New York City, with all its glamour, charm and singularity, it is The Carlyle Hotel. An Upper East Side institution since it opened in 1930, The Carlyle has become synonymous with luxury, status and sophistication. Its suites have housed presidents and princesses, dukes and duchesses, and Hollywood’s most honored stars. Commemorating the hotel’s ninetieth anniversary and featuring the recent renovation by the esteemed designer Tony Chi, this all-new edition of The Carlyle explores the hotel’s storied history and its status as an enduring icon. With exclusive interviews with celebrity patrons and never-before-seen photographs from the earliest archives up to today’s most exclusive parties, this stunning volume is an homage to the rich past and vibrant present of this grand, world-famous hotel.
