eBay Wonderful piece of history of the golden age of New Jersey. Wonderful times, and very elegant------Large 10" x 14" --frameable “When you said you were headed to Hotel Suburban, people looked up from what they were doing,” says Burbage, a longtime resident of the Oranges. Located on South Harrison Street, just steps from the Central Avenue shopping district, the hotel was, she says, “the place to be.” (The hotel had a smaller Summit annex, now the site of the Grand Summit Hotel.) What locals remember best was the elegance of the area. As a child, Burbage would dress in her Sunday best to stroll downtown; as an adult, her social group, the Town and Country Women’s Association, frequently gathered at the Hotel Suburban. It was always a “hat-and-gloves” affair, she says. No wonder Spencer Tracy checked into the Suburban when he visited the Oranges in 1940 for the premiere of the movie Edison, the Man at the nearby Hollywood Cinema. “That was a big event,” recalls Burbage. Dinner menus were written daily. A typical 1941 menu featured Long Island duckling, fresh-caught sea trout and minute steak. A four-course meal cost no more than $1.50. In 1960, the hotel added an 11th floor for a new restaurant. Run by radio personality Dick Kollmar and his wife, newspaper columnist Dorothy Kilgallen, a regular on the celebrity quiz show What’s My Line?, the couple called their supper club Paris in the Sky. Jeff Smith, an amateur local historian, claims Kollmar spent $25,000 “to reproduce a typical Parisian street” in the club, with mock storefronts and kiosks. The club, with its Manhattan skyline view, drew praise from the New York Times. “It [Paris in the Sky] offers musical trios and singers that are not loud, French décor, a bottle of champagne for every four persons, untouched scenic splendors, and a seven-course pheasant or sirloin steak dinner for $15.” The nightclub’s fortunes ebbed after Kilgallen’s death in 1965. By the following decade, as the community changed, the Hotel Suburban became an office building. Eventually, it fell into disrepair and closed in the late 1990s. The building was renovated in 2009 and soldiers on as a nondescript apartment house. The area’s grand old department stores are long gone, replaced by low-end shops, state offices and medical clinics. Still, for locals of a certain age, the memories of Hotel Suburban linger. “It was our Paris here in East Orange,” says Burbage, “and as they say in the pictures, we’ll always have Paris.” Being Sold Estate As Is Condition, so please review photos. Thank you for looking and good luck!!
