What's a six-letter word for 'Swanee River'?

At one point during the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, held in Brooklyn, I notice that one part of the hotel is dedicated to a Brooklyn favorite.

It's the Jackie Gleason Room.

It's on the same floor as the tournament, but we never use it. I never even see what's inside it.

But I'd like to think that if I put my ear to the door, I'd hear Ed Norton tickling (or perhaps mangling) the ivories.

Maybe next year....
