Hotel Algonquin


The historic Hotel Algonquin is located at 59 West 44th Street in New York City. It opened in 1902, designed by architect Goldwin Starrett and managed by Frank Case. It was designated a city landmark in 1987.

Above the tenth story is the dentilled projecting bandcourse on scrolled console brackets. The windows in the outer bays at the twelfth story echo those at the second story. Between the three central windows at the 11th and 12th stories are panels with roundels and a panel also surmounts the 12th story windows. Above are festoons supported by lions' heads and roundels, with floral ornament suspended from them.
