The site that grew into was launched in November 1998 to create something unique online: a site devoted to Dorothy Parker’s life in New York. The award-winning writer and peerless wit was a quintessential New Yorker, and that’s what this site celebrates. The site became so popular, so quickly, that in 1999 friends began the Dorothy Parker Society. This led to walking tours.

This site takes you to her homes and apartments, the hangouts where Mrs. Parker and the Algonquin Round Table met, and even to a few places you may not have heard about. Have you ever heard Mrs. Parker’s voice? Listen to Dottie reading more than 30 poems.
