Hastings-on-Hudson, New York
— The Museum in the Streets® —
In the 1910s and '20s this fashionable restaurant with a spectacular view was all many Manhattanites knew of Hastings. Located on this hilltop with its own gold course, Longue Vue's clientele included socialites, gangsters, and stars such as Enrico Caruso and Al Jolson. Dorothy Gish made the movie Flying Pat there, and Bill Tilden played on its tennis courts. Owned by Ralph Gushee and set in the remodeled 1860s mansion built by Cornelius Vanderbilt's doctor, it featured a Gold Room, an antiques-filled Japanese Room, and a dining room for chauffeurs. Inset: The tennis clubhouse fireplace contained stones with the letters L and V that can be found today in a garden at the Andrus-on-Hudson.
Erected 2006 by The Museum in the Streets®. (Marker Number 34.)
