I look at this video and think, where oh where are those happy sunny days? Sundresses, open-toe shoes and bagels. Life was so good back in September.
Anyway, I’m not surprised that this video got voted in as our number four. I spent days researching the area and become obsessed with the history of both The Dakota and The Ansonia.
On the day we filmed, we tried to get inside of the basement of the Ansonia—where the parties happened—but the current managers of the building weren’t having any of that business. They offered to let us film the lobby, but I wasn’t so interested in that. My head was in that basement. It still is.
