Rothstein:
In early September 1928 Arnold Rothstein, the nation's most notorious gambler, lost
$300,000 marathon poker gambler. He refused to honor his losses. At approximately 10:15
on the night of Sunday, November 4, 1928, A.R. received a call at Broadway's Lindy's
Restaurant. He left the restaurant, heading for a rendezvous at Room 349 of the nearby
Park Central Hotel at West 56th Street and Seventh Avenue. At 10:47 PM hotel elevator
operator Vince Kelly found him mortally wounded in a first floor service corridor.
Rothstein died the next morning at Polyclinic Hospital. He never named his assailant.
