From the pages of AVENUE’s February issue, one of the many memories of the Unofficial Preppy Clubhouse…
All I remember besides the unpleasant and horrible tragedy caused by schoolmate Robert Chambers (which in my opinion was the real, ironic reason the popularity or notoriety of Dorrian’s exploded) were the images of very young and cute girls all 16 and 17 like Alexandra Lind, Lulu deKwiatkowski, Alexandra Miller, Rachel Peters and Caroline Moore. You had Alex von Furstenberg with his curly hair and he always wore a bandanna. You had John Flanagan in his prime. I guess we were all in our prime in terms of being young and having our whole lives ahead of us, and we considered the place our own. It was a great time to be living in our parents’ apartments on the Upper East Side. You still had Zulu Lounge and the Surf Club with the Beavers brothers. Palladium and Nell’s were a quick ride down Second Avenue for later. And no one asked for IDs, unless they didn’t know you. Lately I’ve been rediscovering Dorrian’s a bit. I always run into someone from the old days there. But mostly it makes me feel old because everyone else seems so much younger—and they are!
