Good Bye Ambassador

News from all over on the unsuccessful bid to save The Ambassador Hotel from demolition. The historic Ambassador - site of RFK's assassination and the Cocoanut Grove nightclub - will be torn down to build another school. The Cocoanut Grove, launching pad for such luminaries as Merv Griffin and Judy Garland, will be spared however and will be turned into the school's main auditorium.
