Wallet Card at the Hotel McAlpin

The Hotel McAlpin was the location for an important moment in baseball history. At the time of it's construction in 1912, it was the largest hotel in the world.

In 1947, Jackie Robinson was living in room 1169 with his wife and baby when he got the call that he was going to be signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers.

In 2001, the hotel was converted to luxury apartments and renamed Herald Towers.
