Long Description:
The marker is located in front of the hotel, and it has identical text on both sides. It says:

The old Arlington Hotel, located across the street on the Arlington Lawn, was the site of the infamous arrest of New York Giants manager John "Mugsy" McGraw. Apprehended by a U.S. Marshal for unlawful gambling when he was caught pitching silver dollars into a saloon basket, "Mugsy" was later released. The current Arlington Hotel, built in 1924, has hosted such baseball notables as: Babe Ruth, Lefty Grove, Hank Greenberg, Jimmie Foxx, and Joe DiMaggio.
