Discussion Newport Casino Commentary

"The International Tennis Hall of Fame is located in McKim, Mead, and White's Newport Casino onBellevue Avenue. Although the club rooms are now used for tennis-relateddisplay, much of the original M, M, & W design work is still visible. Thearcaded galleries around the central courtyard are still very evocative ofthe gilded age, and the street frontage shows M, M, & W's genius for makinga Shingle Style building both urbane and original."

—Reidar Dittmann, Jr. (by e-mail, 98.09.03)
