The Croyden

Our newstand in the lobby of the Croyden.

After Mother had our place on Park Avenue packed up and before she announced we were moving to London, we lived at the Croyden Hotel at 12 East 86th Street just off 5th Avenue for a few months.  This little newstand (and its candy) was the hotel’s highlight for Robbie and me.  We bought Tiger Beats and Chunky Candy bars and tried to avoid troubling questions like why did we leave our old house and where were we going from here.
