And also Carlton (Hotel, at the corner of Madison Ave.
and 29th Street). I lived in this beautiful old
building for a month back in the '70s during a protracted
transit strike. At the time it was a real fleabag and
a few of my fellow guests worked, um, by the hour, let's say.
But it was definitely affordable.
It's much nicer now, and a room the size of the one I
had costs more than I paid for the whole month.
