The Naked Doorman: A Synopsis
The classic New York City Doorman is a beloved icon for tourists and locals alike.
The first person a tourist encounters when arriving at a hotel, the New York City
Doorman is there with a helping hand and a smile to literally open doors to
unforgettable experiences in the best city in the world. Locals and passersby can
also count on the Doorman to provide them with simple directions or recommend
the best nightspots, museums, and restaurants.
With a uniform consisting of Swarovski-encrusted shorts, the obligatory top
hat , and the best legs in New York City, the Naked Doorman is the epitome of
this New York City icon. The Naked Doorman has worked at the most prestigious
hotels in the world and has penned a memoir revealing raw, true stories of what
happens behind closed doors at the swankiest rooms and residences in the city.
“The Revolving Door “, a tell-all book chronicles his adventures in the hotel
industry, the liquor industry , and as a Segway entrepreneur.
With his spunky and sarcastic 9 year-old daughter behind the camera, checkout
his webisodes conveying his efforts to transform his physical appearance at his
hometown, mom-and-pop gym in Seaford, Long Island. Humorous background
commentary conveys his daughters doubts and innocent boredom with her
father’s efforts to slim down from a starting weight of 300 pounds. Shots of the
colorful personalities at the gym, who serve as both competitive and inspirational
figures for the Naked Doorman, are vivid and real. In an age where franchise
gyms monopolize the industry, endearing stories unfold as members are given
personal, hands-on attention at the gym while enduring personal journeys of
transformation; some for their very survival.
As a doorman at the Roosevelt Hotel hundreds of tourists have taken
commemorative photos with the Naked Doorman as a souvenir of their time in
the city. This summer, the Naked Doorman will be appearing at the pinnacle
of the world, Times Square, to promote “The Revolving Door”, and “segway”
beyond his door into the conscious of tourists and native New Yorkers alike. A
licensed sightseeing tour guide, he will dole out advice and encourage tourists to take souvenir photos to share on his Facebook page.
This summer the Naked Doorman will knock out cowboys and other posers to
take his place as the true icon of New York City.
