76-Second Travel Show: “Chester A. Arthur Sandwich, The”

Episode #022
F E A T U R I N G * 4 5 * B O N U S * S E C O N D S

I spent President’s Day thinking about two presidents: Theodore Roosevelt, the only pres born in Manhattan, and Chester A Arthur, the only one where you can buy a Lebanese sandwich in his old bedroom. Plus Arthur had great chops. Plus he wore five pairs of pants a day. Plus he pronounced his middle name ‘Alan’ as ‘alAN,’ French-style.

On Monday, I visited his old home, at 123 Lexington Ave in New York City, and requested a particular-type of sandwich. One that brings all these Arthur components together.

Warning: this video features two simulated gunshots, some blood, and the acting debuts of John Whitaker (as Charles Guiteau) and Eric Davison (as James Garfield).

    I recently read an article, which I can’t find now, about restorative renovations made to the Roosevelt townhouses — but a sandwich shop is much more interesting.
