Your Horoscope LANDMARK DOOMED — New York's historic Hotel Brevoort on lower Fifth Avenue, will soon be torn down. The small building at the left, once the home of Mark Twain, will also be razed to clear the block for apartment!. By DAVID G. BAREUTHER Associated Pre*s Heal Estate Editor NEW YORK — Many famous ghost* are about to b« evicted In New York's 'old Greenwich Village. Th« historic Hotel Brevoort, for mor* than a • century gathering place of international celebrities, will soon be torn down. Along with it will go Mark Twain's former home and several adjoining old houses to make way for a large luxury- typt apartment huildlng in lower Fifth Avenu* near th« Washington Arch. The Brevoort'* picturesque sidewalk caft has been a familiar landmark to tourists who for years rode the upper decks of Fifth Avenue's buses and lately have been riding under the glass tops of rubber-neck buses. Although the building has been closed as a hotel since 1948, because of the lire laws, its ballroom, restaurant and sidewalk cafe have remained in operation. The upper stories have been reserved for ghosts —of which the Brevoort seems to have had a social lion's share. President* Registered There Tot generations this hotel enjoyed the reputation of being one place in New York where a Broadway producer could recruit a complete cast for a play—where a publisher could enlist a staff for a newspaper or magazine at almost any time. Opened in 1845 as one of the finest hostelries in old New York, the Brevoort kept a register that reads like n "Who's Who" of the world. Presidents Lincoln, Garfield and Arthur, jigned In as guests. Emma, the dowager queen of the Sandwich Islands—now known as Hawaii— Inscribed her name in that fabulous book. Jerome Bonaparte, the Marquess of Queensbury, the Duke of Marlborough, the Earl of Lonsdale, Prince George of Greece were among others who left their autographs. The Brevoort was always noted for its cuisine. Early in the 20th Century, Raymond Orteii?, popular host and wit, took over the proprietorship and introduced authentic French cooking with imported chefs. Orleig was the man who in 1919 let up a $25,000 prize for the first non-stop flight from New York to his beloved Paris. That was the prlM collected just 25 years ago by Charles A, Lindbergh. Sew Thrifty Orteig popularized the Brevoort as a meeting place for artists, actors, writers and thinkers of the new 20th Century. His basement dining room attracted Eugene O'Neill in his fledgling days, Isadora Duncan, Theodore Dreiser, Lincoln Steffeps, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Jo Davidson, John Sloan, Mabel Dodge, John Reed, Sinclair Lewis and many others who left their mark on the era. One of the biggest social affairs remembered was a dinner party given by Annie Oakley, the crack shot circus performer, whose name Is perpetuated in all free tickets marked by their three bullet holes. Just north of the Brevoort, the old Mark Twain home Is one of ten smaller buildings which will be razed for the new project. This was wnere Samuel Clemens lived from 1904 to 1908 and where he completed his book "Adam's Diary." The house has been built about 110 years ago by James Renwick, whose friend Washington Irving often visited there. Although this house was converted into apartments in 1925, a bronze tablet, unveiled by the Greenwich Village Historical Society, commemorates its tenancy by Irving and Twain. Unusual Realty Deal The structure to take the place of the Brevoort and Mark Twain house will be erected by Sam Minskoff & Sons, Inc., one of the largest apartment building organizations in New York. The firm has built more than *150 million worth of luxury apartments and hotels in 25 years. An odd feature about the deal is that the property has not been sold, but leased for 105 years. This is because it forms part of the old farm of Robert Richard Randall, a retired sea captain, who stipulated In his will in 1801 that the land would never be sold. Randall left his farm, which originally had been the Henry Brevoort farm, for the establishment of Sailors' Snug Harbor. He wanted a home for "aged, decrepit and worn- out sailors" to be erected "upon some eligible part" of his farm. But soon after Randall died, the trustees of his estate became convinced that the town of New York would grow northward on Manhattan Island and would require streets to be cut through the farm. They obtained permission from the state legislature to locate the sailors' home on Staten Island overlooking New York Bay, and to Use the income from Randall's farm to support the institution. Sailors' Snug Harbor still owns and administers 15 acres of valuable properly in the heart of New York bordering Washington Square. Some has been leased to New York University and other parcels for new apartment projects. Washington Headquarters Will Nol Be Opened The George Washington Cabin in Riverside Park will not be opened for public inspection tomorrow the first president's birthday. In past years members of Crcsap Chapter DauRhters of the American Revolution have acted as hostesses when residents visited the shrine to inspect relics including; guns, bullets, irons, candle moulds, and other mementos. For the past two years the building has been closed due to the flood control work in that section of Cumberland. A woman's hand-squeeze averages about 45 pounds; a man's about 80.
