An abandoned 130-year-old skyscraper is now Manhattan's newest luxury hotel
The Beekman Hotel opened last week in Manhattan's Financial District after more than two years of renovation. And it looks gorgeous.The nine-floor building, originally constructed in 1883, was one of the first skyscrapers built in Manhattan and features an open atrium in the center, with a pyramidal skylight at the top. It's connected to a ten-story annex that was built in 1890.Advertisement
According to the New York Times, the building housed law offices in the Victorian era, and was called Temple Court. Many renovation plans for the property were considered before this current one, but a developer was finally confirmed in 2014.
Now, the space is an elegant hotel fitted with a bar, restaurant, and updated rooms that complement the hotel's classic-looking lobby and atrium.Take a look inside.
