Guest of the Gramatan

On Saturday, October 4th, 2014, an evening at Bronxville’s illustrious Hotel Gramatan was reimagined at The Jane Hotel, NYC. Towering atop Sunset Hill from 1905 until it was demolished in 1972, the Hotel Gramatan enjoyed its spectacular heyday in the 1920’s – the Age of Wonderful Nonsense. Whether seeking a season of revelry, a marriage prospect or even a hiding place, guests flocked to the glamorous Gramatan from across the globe to rub elbows with celebrities including Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson, and Ethel and John Barrymore. On October 4th, for three fleeting hours, the Young Families committee hosted a supremely festive evening that celebrated the glittering past of the storied Hotel Gramatan.
