Experience the newly renovated lobby of this jazz age iconic hotel in New York. When it was built in 1929, the New Yorker was the largest hotel in the city and had the country’s largest private power plant. Over the years, The New Yorker has hosted celebrities such as John F. Kennedy, Muhammad Ali, and Jennifer Hudson. Nikola Tesla lived in rooms 3327 and 3328 for the last decade of his life (1933-1943). The lobby retains the hotel’s original glamor with art deco styling and grand spaces. Step downstairs to see photos and memorabilia from the hotel’s history, including a bust of Nikola Tesla.
