Doormen (Fieldwork Encounters and Discoveries)
Doormen (Fieldwork Encounters and Discoveries)
Little fascinates New Yorkers more than doormen, who know far more about tenants than tenants know about them. Doormen know what their tenants eat, what kind of movies they watch, whom they spend time with, whether they drink too much, and whether they have kinky sex. But if doormen are unusually familiar with their tenants, they are also socially very distant. In Doormen, Peter Bearman untangles this unusual dynamic to reveal the many ways that tenants and doormen negotiate their complex relationship.

Combining observation, interviews, and survey information, Doormen provides a deep and enduring ethnography of the occupational role of doormen, the dynamics of the residential lobby, and the mundane features of highly consequential social exchanges between doormen and tenants. Here, Bearman explains why doormen find their jobs both boring and stressful, why tenants feel anxious about how much of a Christmas bonus their neighbors give, and how everyday transactions small and large affect tenants' professional and informal relationships with doormen.

In the daily life of the doorman resides the profound, and this book provides a brilliant account of how tenants and doormen interact within the complex world of the lobby.

The Roosevelt Hotel, New York City
The Roosevelt Hotel, New York City
The Roosevelt Hotel 45 East 45th Street Madison Avenue at 45th Street New York, NY 10017 The Vanderbilt Avenue facade of the Roosevelt -------- Construction on the 1,100 room Roosevelt Hotel was completed in 1924. The $12,000,000 hotel occupied an entire block. The hotel was developed as part of Terminal City, a complex of four palatial hotels and offices connected to Grand Central Terminal and all owned by The New York State Realty and Terminal Company a division of The New York Central Railroad. The other three hotels were the New York Biltmore Hotel (now known as 335 Madison Avenue), the Commodore Hotel (now the Grand Hyatt New York) and the Belmont (now demolished). All four had similar designs of indented light courts above a low-rise base and dark red and brown brick facades and underground connections directly to the lobby of Grand Central Station. Upon opening the Roosevelt Hotel was operated by United Hotels headed by Frank A. Dudley. Dudley also built among others the President in Kansas City and the Ten Eyck Hotel in Albany. The Roosevelt was the first hotel in New York City to have street level shops - the shops were expected to offset the revenue losses due to the Prohibition. George B. Post & Sons (architects of original structure) also designed the New York Stock Exchange and the Wisconsin State Capital. The hotel's namesake was the 26th president of the U.S., Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt. The hotels facade consists of antique French marble and limestone reflecting Colonial American Architecture. The hotel's most elaborately appointed area is the Palm Room - a two story oval shaped tearoom, canopied by a 28-foot high sky mural and encircled by a dozen stately marbleized pillars. A vintage relief of Teddy Roosevelt cast in bronze has stood watch over the main lobby since the 1920's. At its opening the hotel offered child care facilities known as the teddy bear club and had radios in every guest room. The hotel also had Turkish baths and a small hospital complete with an operating room. Guy Lombardo and his orchestra performed their first show the Roosevelt Grill on Oct 3, 1929 and continued to play there until 1959. It was at the Grill that he first broadcast what would become a famous New Year’s Eve tradition, playing of Auld Lang Syne. According to the Roosevelt web site The Roosevelt Hotel has appeared in several major motion pictures, including The Boiler Room, Wall Street, Quiz Show, Presumed Innocent, Malcolm X, Monday Night Mayhem, The French Connection, Hanky Panky, Maid in Manhattan, The Hoax and 1408. Through the years The Roosevelt had several fine restaurants including the Colonial Room, Madison Club Lounge, the Roosevelt Grill and Rough Rider Room cocktail lounge. By 1961, the Rib Room and Club Car were very popular. On March 4th, 1929 United Hotels merged with the Bowman-Biltmore Group operators of the Belmont, Biltmore and Commodore Hotels. It was said the pride of the Bowman-Biltmore hotel system was Manhattan's Biltmore Hotel and the pride of the United Hotels chain was Manhattan's Roosevelt. The next-door neighbors became financial companions upon the merger of Bowman-Biltmore-United Hotels that created a hotel chain with more than 100 hotels. In December 1934 Bowman-Biltmore filed for bankruptcy and an affiliate of New York Central - The Realty Hotel Group took control of The Roosevelt along with the Biltmore, Commodore and the Barclay. According to Conrad Hilton's book "Be My Guest" he made up his mind to purchase The Roosevelt Hotel in 1948 "because it's a fine hotel and the lobby reminded him of the vast open spaces of San Antonio". Following Hilton's purchase of the Statler Hotel chain in 1957 (which included the New York Statler ). The United States Justice Department (dealing with the new anti-trust laws) forced Hilton to sell The Roosevelt in New York. By 1957 the Roosevelt belonged to the Hotel Corporation of America (now known as Sonesta International Hotels). In 1968 The New York Central Railroad merged with The Pennsylvania Railroad forming Penn-Central who now ran the Realty Group. In 1978 all the hotel assets of The Penn Central Corporation (formerly New York Central Railroad) which operated four Grand Central City hotels through their Realty Hotel Group were ordered to be sold by a bankruptcy judge. The Barclay, The Biltmore, and The Roosevelt were sold to Lowes Corporation in a bid process. In 1978 Lowes quickly sold the Roosevelt to the Paul Milstein Group who partnered with King Faisal. Pakistan International Airlines Investment Limited (PIAL) was incorporated on 10 September 1977 in Sharjah, UAE, as a limited company under a decree issued by HRH Prince Faisal Bin Khalid Bin Abdul Aziz and is currently registered in British Virgin Islands. The Holding Company (PIAC) interest in PIAIL is 99%. In February 1979, the Roosevelt Hotel, New York, was leased by Letoh Associates (Paul Milstein & family) to Roosev
