The Dakota is the legendary building where John & Yoko lived, where Rosemary's Baby was set and back in 1961 where actress Lauren Bacall bought an apartment there. She lived there up until her death last year. I've told the story before (and I'll tell it again) but I was at a star-studded party and dinner at author John Patrick Shanley's downtown ...

Zuk bought the tooth for more than $30,000, when the son of Lennon's former housekeeper, Dot Jarlett, who'd acquired the tooth ... See the Rest
