Now owned by the Unification Church, the New Yorker was, with 2,503 guest rooms, one of the city’s biggest when it was built. An early advertisement boasted that its bell boys were as snappylooking as West Pointers, that it had a radio in every room with a choice of four stations, that its barber shop had twenty-five chairs and its laundry 150 employees. The ad also mentioned ninety-two telephone girls, and kitchens as clean as a model private home kitchen.
