"Grand Old Lady", the Iconic Art Deco New Yorker Hotel
The New Yorker Hotel, New York whose design reflects the zoning laws introduced in the city, mid 1930s. From her iconic Art Deco style to her ingenious American construction, the "Grand Old Lady" has been striking component of the New York skyline, towering above all others and illuminating it since her 1930 inception. Built with a private power plant, an underground tunnel to Penn Station and even an ice rink, The New Yorker was the most technologically advanced of her day. At the height of her popularity she hosted influential politicians, celebrities, and sports figures, and entertained in The Terrace Room with the who's who of the Big Band era. Today she returns to her roots, proving that she was destined for greatness from the very start.
