The Waldorf Astoria is one of New York's most famous and maybe even more infamous landmarks. The original 13-story hotel opened in March 1893 on Fifth Avenue, now the site of the Empire State Building. The current iteration opened on Park Avenue in 1931, where it has stood for nearly 90 years as New York’s largest privately-owned landmarked building.
. . .
Now, well into 2020, the property is being transformed into a one-of-a-kind luxury hotel and residences with modern amenities that will take your breath away.
