Dot City: Dorothy Parker's New York

Dedicated to that bon vivant of the New York 1920s literary set, the Dorothy Parker's New York is sponsored by the Dorothy Parker Society of New York. The site is essentially a visual history of Ms. Parkers life in New York during the period and her time as a member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table. Visitors are taken to her different homes, literary hangouts (where she hobnobbed with fellow writers like Robert Benchley), and their favorite speakeasies. As Ms. Parker eventually moved west to write for Hollywood, visitors can also take yet another visual tour to some of the places she lived and frequented. The highlight of this section is an audio archive featuring Ms. Parker reading some of her favorite poems, including Men and One Perfect Rose. Rounding out the site is information on the Society's activities, including a newsletter and details on the annual Parkerfest, held to celebrate the memory of Dorothy Parker.
