Theresa Hotel
Theresa Hotel
The Hotel Theresa was a vibrant center of black life in Harlem during the mid-20th century. The hotel sits at the intersection of Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard 125th Street. It opened in 1913. From the time it opened until 1940, the hotel accepted only white guests plus a few black celebrities. This changed when the hotel passed to new management. Louis Armstrong, Sugar Ray Robinson, Lena Horne, Josephine Baker, Dorothy Dandridge, Duke Ellington, Muhammad Ali, Dinah Washington, Ray Charles, Little Richard, and Jimi Hendrix all stayed in the Hotel or lived there for a time, as did Fidel Castro, while in New York for the 1960 opening session of the United Nations, after being turned away from the Hotel Shelburne because of concern about "adverse publicity." The black owner of Hotel Theresa invited Castro, along with his entire delegation, to lodge with them, free of charge. The hotel profited from the refusal of prestigious hotels elsewhere in the city to accept black guests. As a result, black businessmen, performers, and athletes were thrown under the same roof. After leaving the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X maintained his competing Organization of Afro-American Unity at the hotel and hosted meetings there. He met Cassius Clay in the hotel on various occasions. Bill Clinton's commerce secretary, Ron Brown, grew up in the hotel, where his father worked as manager. U.S. Congressman Charles Rangel (D-Harlem) once worked there as a desk clerk. The hotel may have enjoyed its greatest prominence in 1960. Nikita Kruschev visited New York in that year, during the week when Castro was staying in Harlem, and came to meet him in the hotel. Also, in October of 1960, John F. Kennedy campaigned for the presidency at the hotel, along with Eleanor Roosevelt and other powerful figures in the Democratic Party. The hotel suffered from the continued deterioration of Harlem through the 1950s and 1960s, and, ironically, from the end of segregation elsewhere in the city. As black people of means had alternatives, they stopped coming to Harlem. The hotel closed in 1967. After remaining vacant for four years, the building was converted to office space in 1971, and now goes by the name "Theresa Towers," though a sign with the old name is still painted on the side of the building, and the old name is still commonly used. The building was declared a landmark by the City of New York in 1993.
Stephen F. Austin Hotel
Stephen F. Austin Hotel
To meet the needs of the growing Austin community, T.B. Baker, president of Baker Hotels, opened a hotel in 1924 at this site, previously occupied by the Keystona Hotel. Baker's new facility, initially to be called " The Texas, " was named for Stephen F. Austin in response to local interest. Acclaimed Fort Worth firm Sanguinet, Staats and Hendrick designed the Beaux Arts Hotel; local architect Roy L. Thomas represented them in its construction. In 1938, five stories were added. After restoration in 2000, the hotel retains much of its original, classically influenced detailing on the interior and exterior. (Marker No. 13141)
