The Level Club: A New York City Story of the Twenties : Splendor, Decadence and Resurgence of a Monument to Human Ambition

Bruno Bertuccioli presents a vivid history of the Level Club,from it's origins as an exotic Masonic Club of the 1920's,to decadence after the crash of 1929,then renewal in 1984 as a residential condominium The Level Club is representative of the Art Deco building design that fluorished in New York City in the 1920's The book provides an itinerary of the building's origin's into the present providing a glimpse of the exciting atmosphere prevailing in New York during the twenties which led a group of Freemasons to envisage and persue their dream of building a Hotel devoted only to Masons with the latest state of the art the Hotel Industry of that time could provide. The book examines the Level Club's Masonic tradition, the innumerous decorative symbols adorning it's facade the social context of the period,the personalities and motivation of it's founders and members (among them was Al Jolson)and explains why the building can truly be considered as the world only building size rendering of the King Solomon's temple
