There is a good story about how many years ago the Weld family donated a John singer sargent painting called the chess players to the HCNY. He wasn't popular back then as he is now. The club auctioned it off for many millions and bought the building next door (now the modern wing). A replica of the original chess players painting hangs in the Weld room. You should check it out the next time you are there.

Don't know about Dominos but the Red Flame a few doors down will deliver. Seriously. The HCNY kitchen is closed on the weekends.
