Notes
The Ariston Baths were located in the basement of the Ariston Hotel at the corner Broadway and 55th Street in New York City. It was in operation as early as 1897. In mid February of 1903, particularly by Valentines day, the police started infiltrating the establishment in secret. On February 21st a large number of police stood by while a half dozen undercover policemen spent several hours observing the inside and keeping track of the "crimes" taking place.
