Midtown in the 1940's

New, 22 comments

While World War II dominated the first half of the 1940's, in a world that was seemingly far away from the war, those who had remained on the home front had no shortages of luxury dining establishments. Midtown was home to high end social clubs and restaurants, including the Stork Club and Rainbow Room, creating a lively social scene that attracted celebrities and wealthy patrons. By the 40s, the famed '21' Club had transitioned from speakeasy to a proper dining establishment. Here's a peek in to those coveted spots.
