Old Astor House, Buildings on Broadway in 1924


Buildings on west side of Broadway. The northern part of the old Astor House is in the center, on the corner of Barclay Street. The southern part of the old hotel was razed in 1913 due to subway construction. In 1915, the Astor House Building, seen on the left, was erected on the same site.

The Woolworth Building, once the highest building in the world, is on the right. The last part of Astor House was demolished in 1926 and the 44-story Transportation Building was erected on the site.
