Old Waldorf-Astoria - 1900


The Old Waldorf-Astoria Hotel was located on Fifth Avenue, from 33rd to 34th streets. It was demolished in 1929. Until 1897 it consisted of two separated hotels. The building in the foreground was the 16-story Astoria Hotel, erected on the southeast corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street.

Standing at the important corner of Fifth Avenue and Thirty-fourth Street, Waldorf-Astoria dominated much of New York around it.
