Stairway to nowhere

This famous stairway can be found in the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. It is so called because it was added to the lobby for the purpose of allowing ladies to make an "entrance" to show off their evening wear. Stylish women would enter the hotel and take the elevator to the second floor to check their wrap in the cloakroom, then be noticed as they descend the stair.

The stairway can be seen in one episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
