In 1960, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, in New York to visit the United Nations, angrily checked out of the Shelburne Hotel in a dispute with the management.
Castro ended up staying at the Hotel Theresa where he met Cuban workers, Malcolm X in his third floor office and many others in the hotel in Harlem.
