The Knickerbocker & Time Square on the Lincoln Highway

The Knickerbocker on the Lincoln Highway or 42nd Street

We arrived before Jerry (the director of the New York Lincoln Highway) and were escorted to our table. A gentleman with a camera was waiting for us. Come to find out that the Knick hired him - a professional photographer - to document our lunch as we chatted about Anita and her story. Jerry arrived and indicated that the director of the state of New Jersey Lincoln Highway was going to join us.

All of those who were present were very interested in hearing all about Anita. We had everyone autograph the traveling silk scarf and we shared photos of Anita with all.

We received a copy of the beautiful book about the history of the Knickerbocker. Anita had a celebration at the hotel with directors, the mayor and film stars. The hotel closed down in the 20's and just reopened this summer as a hotel and Charlie Palmer's restaurant. The food was incredible and at the end of our 3 hour visit, we learned that our meals were complimentary! Such a heartfelt celebration in the big city! They really showed that they cared about Anita's story! Thank you Knickerbocker!
