When Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012 our Manhattan apartment building was severely affected, we were evacuated and moved to a Marriott hotel three blocks away for a few days . (See Cooking with Gas)
A few years earlier we also had to vacate when during a renovation the construction dust forced us out. (See (The Lion, The Witch, and) The Wardrobe)
We moved to Hotel Wales on Madison Ave and 92 St where the elegant decor and the afternoon tea were not hard to take.
A few years ago when I heard the hotel closed, I felt I’d lost a little piece of home.
