New Releases. North Conway. Free delivery worldwide. From to , Byrnes rose through the ranks of the city's police department to become one of the most celebrated detectives in American history, a larger-than-life figure who paved the way for modern-day police methods, both good and bad. During the age of Gangs of New York, Byrnes solved many of the most sensational and high-profile cases in the city and the country. He captured Manhattan's Jack the Ripper copy-cat killer; solved the murder of prostitute Maude Merrill, who was killed by her jealous lover-her own uncle; solved the largest bank heist in American history; arrested anarchist Emma Goldman for inciting a riot in Union Square; and accomplished much more.
But when Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt investigated the corruption that had plagued the department for decades, the man one prominent journalist had dubbed the "big policeman" was forced to resign. North Conway narrates in thrilling, vivid detail the crimes, murders, corruption, and gritty police work associated with the father of the American detective.

And then Henry Hilton got his claws into it, seeing a grand opportunity to cash in. It's a fascinating history, but difficult to summarize here.
Bag of Bones: The Sensational Grave Robbery of the Merchant Prince of Manhattan
Needless to say, ending the hotel's brief function as a womyn's space was justified by all kinds of lies about how women didn't want a hotel just for women, how women didn't apply for the rooms, blah blah. For example, Hilton claimed that the hotel never had more than 50 registered residents, when in fact they received over a 1, applications with 75 women moving in the very first day. Women want to associate with the other sex and the restrictions imposed upon them in this house were so severe that many who would have gladly have taken advantage of its benefits declined for that reason.
Then there was this outrageous blathering: Women will not be kept from the other sex. You can run a hotel for men exclusively--but for women you can't. I am not greatly surprised at the failure. But I have done my full duty in the face of a conviction of inevitable failure. It's a pattern that's frequently seen in places like New York where desirable real estate is highly coveted.
There were storms of protests when Hilton closed down the Hotel, but he did it anyway.
By June, the place had reopened as the for profit Park Avenue Hotel. But not terribly practical for full-time residents, as many lacked closets Hilton apparently had something to do with this. The Reception Room also illustrated below is where women residents were allowed to meet male visitors. And notice all the men in the foreground of the print showing off the Grand Dining Room.
