Astor House, Broadway - 1913

 

The Astor House, Broadway (west side) between Vesey Street and Barclay Street, Manhattan. It was built between 1834 and 1836, demolished in 1913 (southern portion) and 1926 (northern portion). Photo taken June 13, 1913.

The Astor House was a luxury hotel funded by John Jacob Astor and designed by architect Isaiah Rogers. Abraham Lincoln stayed there for his famous Cooper Union speech in 1860. In 1864, the Astor was one of many New York City hotels set on fire by Confederate conspirators (source: Frank Cousins Collection / NYC).
