Description

In the spirit of Will Rogers, 'Buy matchbooks, because they're not making anymore!' This would make an unexpected and nostalgic gift for the lover of New York on your list who has everything. This collection of 70 vintage matchbooks (circa 1950s through the 80s) from iconic New York hotels, restaurants and night clubs is in excellent condition. Some have phone numbers with telephone exchanges that pre-date area codes -- like La Bourgogne East at UNI-4489. A truly mid-century collection! A good number of the restaurants and night clubs in this collection are now shuttered, like The Red Parrot and Regine's. The once legendary Hotel Dorset was demolished to make way for MoMA's expansion, but a few matchbooks survived!
