Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, to film scenes in The Hustler with Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason, to Al Capone’s secret passageways and a mythic ghost-in-residence. With the owner and design team—project design director, project interior designer, project architect, project executive—behind its rebirth, examine the renovation of this luxury property as iconic, lavish architecture and roaring ‘20s legacy meet renewed elegance.
