An East Lyme couple will mark their 60th wedding anniversary at New York's Waldorf-Astoria for the same $16.80 per night they paid on their honeymoon.
Isidore and Joan Schwartz still have their March 2, 1952 hotel bill.
Today, rooms at the Waldorf start at $319 a night, but the hotel charges the original room rate for returning guests celebrating a milestone. It said that two to three couples a year take advantage of the deal.
The former New Yorkers met on a blind date in 1950.
Their wedding reception was on Manhattan's Upper West Side and Joan Schwartz told the Daily News that it cost $4.75 a head for a catered steak dinner and ice sculpture decorations.
