The Arlington Hotel
The old Arlington Hotel, originally located across the street on the Arlington Lawn, was the site of the infamous arrest of New York Giant’s manager John “Mugsy” McGraw. Apprehended by a U.S. Marshal for unlawful gambling when he was caught pitching silver dollars into a saloon basket, “Mugsy” was later released. The current Arlington Hotel, built in 1924, has hosted baseball notables: Babe Ruth, Lefty Grove, Hank Greenberg, Jimmie Foxx, and Joe DiMaggio.
