The Lawford is affectionately-named for famed British actor and â€œOceanâ€™s 11â€ star Peter Lawford, who lived in #5 (there are 21 units in the building). Neighbors recall a time when members of Hollywoodâ€™s famed â€œRat Packâ€ (of which Lawford was a founding member) would come calling. Rat-packers Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Joey Bishop routinely rubbed elbows with politicos like the Kennedy clan, as well. Neighbors recall at least one visit from John F. Kennedy to the building. Lawford was married to JFKâ€™s sister, Patricia.
