Koreatown Historic Building – The Old Grolier Club

ImageLocated in Koreatown NY at 29 East 32nd Street, The Old Grolier Club is a New York City designated landmark.

Via NYTimes. It has been a midtown puzzle, a curious, neo-Romanesque gem out of place in its surroundings of tall lofts and offices. Now the building, built for and occupied by the Grolier Club from 1889 to 1917, has reopened as the Grolier, a membership supper club.

Members with similar interests once again cross the doorway, but those interests are not the ones that, on Jan. 23, 1884, brought a group of men together in the home of Robert Hoe at 11 East 36th Street. They founded a club devoted to appreciating the book arts and named it for Jean Grolier de Servieres, a 16th-century French book connoisseur.

A member of the Historic Hotels of America and New York City’s oldest operating hotel, the Radisson Martinique on Broadway stands majestically at the corners of Broadway and 32nd Street in Greeley Square where it first opened its doors in 1900 amid the “champagne sparkle” of Broadway where it was said by Henry Collins Brown, curator of the Museum of the City of New York, that all the world came “to shop, to dine, to flirt, to find amusement, and to meet acquaintances.”

A stunning Beaux Arts building (the neoclassical architectural style taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris), the Hotel Martinique was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, the renowned New Jersey-born American architect who also designed the Dakota Apartments in Central Park West (1884), the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston (1912), New York’s Plaza Hotel (1905), and the Willard Hotel in Washington D.C. (1902) amongst many other beautiful buildings. http://bit.ly/16aZQHh

The building was designated a New York City landmark in 1998.

(Or are you not so crazy about some of these?)

So…it’s Saturday night. The weather is hot, the sun is just beginning to go down, and the streets of NYC are filled with people dressed to impress.

Well that sounds all well and good until get a message back from that hot college student/photographer you’ve been fawning over saying she wants to go out…with you. You have a crumpled twenty dollar bill in your back pocket, two fives, nine singles and an assortment of coins; what do you do?

Luckily for you, I have the answer. Pull out your unlimited metro card, scoop up your date, and take her to Korea Town. Located just outside of Herald Square (32nd st) Korea Town is one of those slices of New York that you may have…
