Later, Forrester was chauffeured along Twenty-third Street to Fifth Avenue, en route to his final destination, the posh hotel known as the Plaza. Along the way, several attractions drew his attention, including the New York Yacht, the Union League, and the Metropolitan. His taxi was being tailed by Tierney and his squad. Upon arriving at the hotel, Forrester identified himself by saying, "I'm Mr. Forrester, London".
At the hotel, he stayed in a room on the twelfth floor. The room's telephone had been bugged by the police who were in a room on the eleventh floor recording the phone calls to the room. Three females called, all of whom worked in banks. One lived at the Allcroft and the cops that interrogated her believed that she was from Australia, but born in England. Another lived at the Cumberland and was believed to be from Canada, but also born in England. The other was the bank manager at the Ambrose National. He also ordered a copy of The New York Times and the police overheard him chuckling twice at something he had read in the paper that involved Americans and their customs. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")
