Description:

Exterior image of the Park Avenue Hotel decorated with patriotic bunting and a horse drawn carriage parked at the main entrance. Designed by John Kellum and built by Alexander T. Stewart, the Park Avenue Hotel was originally conceptualized as The Working Women's Hotel to provide housing for the influx of single, middle class women working in the city. The experiment did not pan out. Opening in April of 1878, the hotel was closed in May and re-opened in June as the Park Avenue Hotel.
