Behind The Façade: The Ansonia - NY1.com
The Ansonia was the home of the famous swing club Plato's Retreat in the 70's. The article, which is a transcript of the video, covers the various incarnations of the building from the beginning through the present day.
Now, the Ansonia is a high-end condo with street-level retail. The old Plato’s Retreat entrance is now a dry cleaner.
Well, that's not nearly as interesting an entrance.
