Have you ever visited a place and felt instantly transported in time? Thanks to a sensitive architectural restoration by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects and interior design by Martin Brudnizki (creator of boundary-pushing commercial ventures like Sexy Fish), the Beekman Hotel does just that.
And not only that. For, in a town where some impressive buildings have been razed (RIP Penn Station), the hotel also serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining old world charm—an inclination which is becoming rarer.
In fact, in a move that would perplex any lover of historic architecture, the gem lay dormant for over a decade. It was then used as an office block for many more making it one of the most under-appreciated of iconic New York buildings. But, now, the building stands reinvigorated, so much so that luxury fashion house Valentino presented its Pre-Fall 2017 show there.
