Aerial view of The Astor Hotel circa 1916.

Erected in 1904 on the west side of Broadway between 44th and 45th Streets the Astor Hotel was touted as a successor to the Waldorf-Astoria, with ornate rooms and a grand roof terrace it was well placed to take advantage of the emerging theatre district of Broadway. Sadly the hotel was demolished in 1967 to make way for the 54-storey skyscraper One Astor Plaza.
