The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel, epitomizes the ultimate New York City Heritage experience. "This is one of the most famous hotels in the world and yet no one really knows what's behind the door," said David Salvatore in a recent Daily News article. "Even real estate experts who've seen almost every inch of the city say to me, 'I've never been in there.' They've been to the Cafe Carlyle, or maybe they've had tea in the lobby, but no one has been beyond the first floor."
