Photo Gallery of Arnold Rothstein's Murder
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.
