The Plaza has played a major role in American history. In regards to Prohibition, it says on page 70:
"Like everywhere else The Plaza by law was forbidden to sell liquor during Prohibition. 'But it had a cache of champagne and liquor stored in the basement for discreet clientele who lived in the hotel,' confesses Wilhelm. 'Some was carried through a tunnel which ran underneath Fifth Avenue from The Plaza to The Savoy-Plaza. They ferried a lot of stuff back and forth and somewhere down in the third subbasement there's still the outline of where the tunnel was bricked up on The Plaza side. Over the years parts of the tunnel were demolished. But during Prohibition they actually used that tunnel to cart liquor back and forth and in fact, used it to store liquor.'"
"Ernest Hemingway, another intimate of Fitzgerald's circle, once advised F. Scott, regarding his friend's future funeral plans, 'If you really feel blue enough, get yourself insured and I'll see you can get killed and I'll write a fine obituary. We can take your liver out and give it to the Princeton Museum, your heart to The Plaza Hotel.'" (p.115)
