My wife's Grandfather, a widower, married the Granddaughter Of Geoge C. Boldt, he of the castle and Waldorf-Astoria fame. Their summer home, originally George and his wife Louisa, was named Hopewell Hall. When we'd visit them each summer, our bedroom overlooked Pullman Island, named for the man who developed the famous railroad car. Across the river is the town of Alexandria Bay. It was here, George's chef Oscar Tcherky(spelling), came up with 2 specialty dishes, one, Thousand Island Dressing and two, a salad combining apples and raisins, known as Waldorf Salad.
