From an email from Kate:
For your belated birthday pleasure: a photo (attached) of me prowling around
the Gramercy Park Hotel, the contents of which are currently being
liquidated -- from table lamps to door knobs to the mail chute -- so that
Ian Schrager can totally redesign the charmingly shabby old place. I'd first
stumbled upon the pink ladies room several years ago, and was THRILLED to
revisit: those are little poodles strolling through the park there in the
pink and silver wallpaper.
Great picture, and the end of an era.
