Plaza Hotel, New York City

Plaza Hotel, New York City

The Plaza, A Fairmont Managed Hotel
Fifth Avenue at Central Park South, New York, NY 10019

The Plaza Hotel in New York City is jointly owned by Elad Properties and Kingdom Holdings, a Saudia Arabia based corporation. It derives its name from the Grand Army Plaza which sits in front of the hotel. It has been managed by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts since 1999.

History of the Plaza from the Fairmont Plaza web site:

The Plaza opened its doors on October 1, 1907, amid a flurry of impressive reports describing it as the greatest hotel in the world. Located at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South, this luxury hotel was constructed in the most fashionable residential section of New York City.

The Plaza was the dream of financier Bernhard Beinecke, hotelier Fred Sterry, and Harry S. Black, President of the Fuller Construction Company. The Fuller Company also built the Pennsylvania Station, the Flatiron Building, R.H. Macy's flagship store on Broadway and 34th Street, the Savoy-Plaza Hotel across Fifth Avenue, the biggest hotel in the world at the time, designed by McKim, Mead & White, and demolished in 1964. In Chicago, Fuller built the Stevens Hotel, designed by Holabird & Roche.

They purchased a 15-year-old hotel of the same name on the site. The three men set out to replace it with what is surely one of the most elegant hotels in the world. Construction of the 19-story building (a skyscraper back then) took two years at a cost of $12 million - an unprecedented sum in those days. The architect was Henry Janeway Hardenbergh. Hardenbergh also designed the Dakota apartments, the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. and The Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston, set about his task to provide all the pomp, glory, and opulence of a French chateau. No cost was spared. The largest single order in history for gold-encrusted china was placed with L. Straus & Sons, and no less than 1,650 crystal chandeliers were purchased.

Originally, The Plaza, a Manhattan luxury hotel, served as a residence for wealthy New Yorkers. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt were the first to sign the register. For guests who chose to rent on a nightly basis at the time, this New York City luxury hotel's single rooms started at $2.50 per night.

Kings, presidents, ambassadors, stars of stage, screen and sports, as well as business executives and travellers from all parts of the world have gathered and stayed at The Plaza. The Plaza was so well known that Ernest Hemingway once advised F. Scott Fitzgerald to give his liver to Princeton and his heart to The Plaza.

Although The Plaza appeared fleetingly in earlier films, this Manhattan luxury hotel's true movie debut was in Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic North by Northwest - the first time a crew, director and cast assembled on site to make a picture. Before then, movies were shot almost entirely on Hollywood soundstages and rarely on location. The Plaza has provided the location for other motion pictures such as Plaza Suite, The Way We Were, The Great Gatsby, Barefoot in the Park, Funny Girl, Cotton Club, Crocodile Dundee I and II and Home Alone II: Lost In New-York.

Designated a New York City Landmark in 1969, The Plaza is listed on the Register of Historic Places and the only New York City hotel to be designated as a National Historic Landmark.

According to Wikipedia Conrad Hilton bought the Plaza for US$7.4 million in 1943 ($94 million in today's dollars) and spent US$6.0 million ($76.2 million in today's dollars) refurbishing it. The Childs Company, a national restaurant chain which partnered in the development of the neighboring Savoy-Plaza Hotel,(now the site of the General Motors Building), purchased the Plaza Hotel in 1955 for 1,100,000 shares of Childs common stock, valued at approximately $6,325,000 ($51.9 million in today's dollars). Childs subsequently changed its name to Hotel Corporation of America, now known as Sonesta International Hotels Corporation. Donald Trump bought the Plaza for $407.5 million in 1988 ($756 million in today's dollars).

Trump commented on his purchase in a full-page open letter he published in The New York Times: "I haven't purchased a building, I have purchased a masterpiece — the Mona Lisa. For the first time in my life, I have knowingly made a deal that was not economic — for I can never justify the price I paid, no matter how successful the Plaza becomes."

After Trump's divorce from wife Ivana Trump, the Plaza's president, Trump sold the hotel for $325 million in 1995 ($468 million in today's dollars) to Troy Richard Campbell, from New Hampshire. He sold it in 2004 for $675 million ($785 million in today's dollars) to a Manhattan developer, El Ad Properties. El Ad bought the hotel with plans of adding residential and commercial sections. Since The Plaza Hotel is a New York landmark, Tishman Construction Corporation, the construction

Feb 17 2011 [Day 108] “Stupid + Non-Caring + Bad Judgment = A Male?”

Stupid + Non-Caring + Bad Judgment = A Male?

As a male born in the early 1970’s (1973 to be exact) I do believe that I am judged for being a male at times… Perhaps judged isn’t the right word. Perhaps stereotyped is a better word to use. I am not sure what word I can use to describe it in all honesty. This is the point where you think to yourself what the hell are you talking about James? If you can’t think of the word to use to describe how you are feeling then why are you writing about it…

That’s a good question really and I don’t have a good answer. I feel as though I have been dealt a hand of cards that shouldn’t be mine. I feel like the image of the male is some domineering jackass who doesn’t know anything but acts as though he does. Oh yes there are still tons of males out there just like that but I don’t want to be in that club.

If you were to watch any ‘modern’ commercials on TV you would believe I am an idiot male who can’t clean, can’t cook, can’t take care of kids, can’t pick out good food, thinks only about sex, drinks tons of beer and can’t function without a ‘Mom’ in the house… The list goes on and on about all the things I can’t do, too stupid to do, or don’t know how to do.

I don’t understand this, so please help explain it to me… oh and explain why I can’t get any dishwashing gloves in any color than pink (I know they are in other colors too, but pink is prominent) or why paper towels only seem to come with flower prints on them or tissue boxes… or why a Macy’s flyer has 16 pages of female clothes and 2 for males which one is underwear.

This may sound like a male vs. female thing but that’s not the point I am trying to make... I just don’t understand why it has to be that way… In this day in age haven’t we moved forward?

Ravenous: A Food Lover's Journey from Obsession to Freedom

What should I eat? How much should I eat? What does it mean to be nourished? How can I, a food lover and lifelong overeater, learn to be satisfied?

These are the questions Dayna Macy asks in her debut memoir, Ravenous. Like many of us, Macy has had a complicated relationship with food. In order to transform this relationship, Macy embarks on a year-long journey to uncover the origins of her food obsessions. From her childhood home in upstate New York, and back up the California coast, Macy travels across the country, meeting with farmers, food artisans, butchers, a Zen chef, a forager, a chocolatier, and others—to understand where her meals come from, why she craves certain foods, and what food means to her. She looks at how nostalgia is deeply embedded in food, and how the powerful forces of family and tradition shape our food choices.

Rather than head straight for the diet manuals, she chooses to change her relationship with food from the inside out. She delves deeper into the spiritual underpinnings of eating, examines what it means to be satisfied, and ultimately forges her own path to balance and freedom.
