NEW YORK 2017-02-13 The original Waldorf salad, simply lettuce, diced apples and celery tossed in a good-quality mayonnaise, in New York, Feb. 13, 2017. The Waldorf Astoria hotel, birthplace in 1893 of the iconic salad, will close indefinitely for renovations, amid reports that only a small portion of the hotel will remain, making way for luxury apartments.
