Description

Ansonia is likely a reference to the hotel located at 2109 Broadway, New York, NY, 10023. 

"The Ansonia opened in April of 1904. The total construction cost: $3 million. Considered the "grandest hotel in Manhattan," the Ansonia covered 550,000 square feet of space divided among 1,400 rooms, 300 suites, grand ballrooms, restaurants decorated in the style of Louis XIV, a palm court, tearooms and cafes, a bank, a barbershop and tailor, writing rooms, Turkish baths, and the world's largest indoor swimming pool. Not surprisingly, residents lived in opulent apartments with multiple bedrooms, dining rooms, parlors, and libraries and dined on meals prepared by professional chefs."
