The Riviera nightclub in Fort Lee, New Jersey, built on a cliff top overlooking the Hudson River and within sight of the George Washington Bridge and the bright lights of Manhattan, (check this) was known as America's Showcase in the 40s because stars such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis performed here. Russian-born impresario Bill Miller ran the nightclub which only operated during summer and opened for one night on New Year's Eve. The fabled art deco building, painted yellow, had a retractable roof so people could dance under the stars as well as a revolving stage. The Riviera was demolished in 1953 to make way for the Palisades Interstate Parkway and Mr Miller moved to Las Vegas to work as entertainment director at The Sands before moving on to The Sahara, The Dunes and The Flamingo in Las Vegas. Exhibits from the Rivera are on display in Fort Lee Museum and a book about the nightspot, Bill Miller's Riviera, has been written by Tom Austin and Ron Kase.
