A Storied Beginning
In June 1919 New York’s famous wits, authors and critics gathered at The Algonquin, for what would become known as The Round Table. Their daily lunches lasted for 10 years. Most notable members were Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Alexander Woollcott and Harold Ross, who founded The New Yorker here.
