TOKEN OF APPRECIATION|
A landmark at the intersection of West 72nd Street, Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. Turn around and marvel at the Ansonia, the Dorilton, and the Apple Bank.
Mrs. Parker seems like a taxi cab type to me. I can't see her taking the subway around New York. Nowhere I've read did it say she was partial to public transportation. However, there is a famous photo of her standing on the steps of train, holding a handrail.
The subway was a marvel when Dorothy was a young girl, and almost new. Maybe she took it down to visit her father's shop on the Lower East Side. The family lived 100 yards away at 214 W. 72nd St. If Dorothy rode the train, this is where she would catch the Broadway Line, right in Sherman Square.
This beloved (and damn crowded) Neo-Dutch Colonial kiosk has been here since the turn of the Century. It is located about 200 yards from the home she lived in at 214 W. 72nd Street. It also turns up in a lot of movies and TV shows. If you go down to the platform, I guarantee there will be a free music performance.
For a drink:
Malachy's, 103 W. 72nd St. (at Columbus)
Subway: 1,2,3,9 to 72nd St., Bus; M72, M5, M57
