Hundreds of New Yorkers and tourists alike flocked to The Plaza Hotel on Saturday for the landmark's reopening after a three year, $400 million renovation. The doorman said that they say this place is the world's most famous hotel. He worked for the hotel for 15 years until it closed in 2005. The Plaza, a National Historic Landmark overlooking Central Park, first opened in l907. Marilyn Monroe was photographed here and guests included the Beatles and Frank Lloyd Wright. Its ballroom was the setting of Truman Capote's "Black and White Ball" and the wedding of Richard Nixon's daughter, Julie. It is a very famous place.
