    Mr. Lennon is just about to pass out from boredom

    The press conference was at the Delmonico Hotel – not at Forest Hills – the date is correct, though.

    100% correct.. :)
    The Beatles had landed at 3.02am that morning at Kennedy Airport, and were greeted by 3,000 waiting fans. They were driven to the Delmonico Hotel on Park Avenue and 59th Street where more fans were waiting, even though their stay was supposed to be a secret.

    One fan, Angie McGowan, snatched Ringo Starr’s St Christopher medallion as he made his way inside the hotel, although she returned it later that day at their pre-show press conference. The fans were dispersed by police at 4am. By the time The Beatles awoke later that morning thousands more fans were outside.

    GL,
    I thought the St. Christopher story happened Feb. 64 on their first visit.

    As far as I know, it was this day

    GL is spot on, Alex
