Description

The man who built the Fontainebleau and the Eden Roc, the Americana and the Deauville, who remade Lincoln Road as a pedestrian mall, was born on this day in 1902. In this 1990 profile produced for the WTVJ news magazine show "Montage," Lapidus, merely 87 years old at the time, recounted some of his best stories for Ileana Bravo and took a walk through a few of his most famous creations.
