The End of an Era

When I was a little girl, growing up in NYC, I didn’t think I was allowed in the Waldorf=Astoria. I believed that it was a place only for famous or important people. So you might imagine how surreal it was for me to work there during my career in catering and event planning from 1996-2003. This photo was taken in the Silver Corridor when I was there last week for what may have been my final visit before this grand dame closes at the end of February. Feeling ?
