HDC and the Art Deco Society of New York are inviting you to tour around the Waldorf Astoria Hotel with us. Meghan Weatherby of ADSNY will lead us around the publicly accessible areas of the hotel including the Park Avenue Lobby, Grand Ballroom, the Jade Room, the John Jacob Astor Salon, the Basildon Room, the Silver Corridor, the Palm Room, and the Starlight Roof. After the tour we will retire to the beautiful piano bar for libations and lively conversation.

The Waldorf was recently purchased and will be closing in March for a condo renovation. HDC and many others have been petitioning the Landmarks Preservation Commission to landmark these beautifully intact Art Deco interiors before they are forever altered. As part of our social media petition, we will also ask that everyone takes a lot of pictures and uses every medium possible to get the de Blasio administration’s attention in the hopes of preserving this New York City treasure.
