Permanent Installation - New Yorker Hotel - October 2016

October 25, 2016

Very excited to announce that the New Yorker Hotel (A Wyndham Hotel) has acquired four of my prints as a permanent installation at the Hotel. First opened in 1930, the New Yorker Hotel is an iconic figure in the New York City luxury hotel market. At one time the City's largest hotel, the New Yorker has welcomed everyone from tourists to business people to celebrities to government officials - and even royalty has stayed there over the years. It is quite an honor to have my work adorn the walls of this historic hotel. Special thanks to Emily Rodriguez and the Management at the New Yorker for making this possible. These photos are each part of a Limited Edition and there are additional prints in the Edition still available. If interested, please contact me for details.

New Yorker Hotel MoonNew Yorker Hotel<u>THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOS</u><br/> <br/>The famed &quot;New Yorker&quot; is a 43 story hotel located in Midtown Manhattan. It opened on January 2, 1930, and, like its contemporaries, the Empire State Building (1931) and the Chrysler Building (1930), was designed in the Art Deco style which was popular in the 1920s. At a final cost of $22.5 million, it contained 2,500 rooms, making it the city's largest hotel for many years. One of the great things about being a photographer in New York is the opportunity to bring iconic structures like the New Yorker into the modern digital age. While out chasing the moon one night I stumbled across the perfect synergy of sky, skyline and moon. As the moon peeked out from behind the clouds, the high sensitivity of my digital camera allowed me to capture images which would have been difficult, if not impossible, even a few years ago. For me, this is clearly the Golden Age of Photography and it's wonderful to bring the Iconic Age of NY Architecture along with me. I'm not the only one loving these photos: they were a big hit on Social Media and four of these prints were recently purchased by the New York Hotel itself. It's an amazing honor to have my images hanging inside this shining example of New York City history. Thank you New Yorker Hotel for supporting my art!
