n 1880s New York City, few hotels could match the elegance of Hoffman House, on Broadway between 24th and 25th Streets.  And the hotel’s mahogany-walled grand bar and salon was famous in the city.

This was where New York’s titans of industry and political power brokers congregated. Boss Tweed was a regular, along with Grover Cleveland, William Randolph Hearst, and Ulysses S. Grant.
