The Peninsula New York is ideally located on Fifth Avenue and 55th Street in Midtown Manhattan, in the heart of the city’s most prestigious shopping, entertainment and cultural district. The hotel is within walking distance of Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue shopping, excellent restaurants, historic museums and exciting Broadway theatres.
On view from October 1 to November 15, The Peninsula New York presents PINK LOTUS, a large-scale light installation by Peruvian artist Grimanesa Amorós in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In keeping with the initiative’s “pink” theme, Amorós has used LED lights to create a pink lotus flower that highlights the hotel’s landmark façade. Limited-edition tote bags have been exclusively designed by Amorós and can be purchased at The Peninsula New York for $40, with all proceeds benefiting SHARE, a nationwide community offering support and information to women diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancers.
The building’s façade was intended to complement the neighbouring University Club (built in 1900).
The Gotham Lounge is named after The Gotham Hotel, which occupied the building from 1905 until 1979.
A City Landmark
