Notes: The New York Plaza Hotel is located at 5th Avenue (and 59th) Central Park South in Manhattan, New York City. With 26 floors on the site of Cornelius Vanderbilt's French Chateau, it was constructed in 1907 by the famous architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh. The original hotel was known for being one of the most luxurious hotels in the New York area. The Plaza closed on April 30, 2005 and later reopened after a major renovation – reincarnated again as one of New York's most prestigious and luxurious hotels. Click here for the hotel's website.
