Hotel Wellington is on the northwest corner of Madison Avenue, at right. The building was originally constructed for residential purposes. The property belonged to Joseph Stickney. By December, 1892, negotiations to buy the site was completed, and the Hotel Manhattan began to be erected on the site in 1895.

The old Hotel Bristol (opened about 1877) is seen in the distance, on the northwest corner of Fifth Avenue. The spire of West Presbyterian Church can also be seen.
