Built in 1926, as a residence hotel, the original Surrey was home to many of New York's most eccentric celebrities over the years. JFK, Bette Davis, Claudette Colbert. Famous faces who recognized the allure of exceptional, discreet service.


  1. Somebody has to do a comprehensive report (or steer me to one that's been done) of who's been getting all the bucks over the last decade or so.
    When I lived in California I was (I thought) a successful engineer / entrepreneur. So, while I was driving my Ford to the office, I would look at all the Beemers, Porches, Mercedes, Maserati's, and wonder "Just what the HELL do these people do that makes them so rich?"
    And I'm not talking about just a few of these. I'd say 1/2 of the cars on that road were > $65,000 each.
