Hotel Marseilles
Hotel Marseilles
Upper West Side, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States Prominently situated at the comer of West 103rd Street and Broadway, the Hotel Marseilles is a distinctive Beaux-Arts style apartment hotel constructed in 1902-05, at a time when this section of Broadway on the Upper West Side experienced rapid development aided by the opening of the Broadway (IRT) subway line, which included a stop at Broadway and West 103rd Street. A distinguished example of the wave of large-scale hotel construction that followed the passage of the Tenement House Law of 1901, the Hotel Marseilles was one of several grand hotels and apartment hotels, such as the Astor Hotel and the Ansonia, built along Broadway north of Times Square during the first decade of the twentieth century. The Hotel Marseilles, clad in brick with limestone, wrought-iron, and terra-cotta trim and crowned with a sloping mansard roof, illustrates the rise of the "modem French" style in commercial and hotel architecture. The appearance of this style in the United States was the result of a sharp increase in the number of American architects attending the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the concomitant ascent of France as the dominant influence in American architecture in the late nineteenth century. Erected for the Netherlands Construction Company and leased after completion to the Marseille [sic] Hotel Company, this apartment hotel was designed by noted architect Harry Allan Jacobs, a specialist in hotels and residential buildings. Largely intact, the Hotel Marseilles serves as a significant reminder of the development of Broadway and the Upper West Side in the first decade of the twentieth century. The Hotel Marseilles was built by the Netherlands Construction Company (J. Arthur Pinchbeck, president) and leased after completion to the Marseille [sic] Hotel Company. it was one of several Beaux-Arts style hotels and apartment hotels located on Broadway. Its design, characterized by overscaled decorative classical elements and a mansard roof, illustrates the development of the "modem French" style in commercial and hotel design that began in New York in the 1890s.7 The use of the "modem French" style in New York City coincided with the rise of France as the dominant influence in American architecture in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. This corresponded to a sharp rise in the number of American architects that studied at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris; over 350 of them were enrolled between 1890 and 1910.3 After returning to America, these architects sought to advance the use of Beaux-Arts principles in American architecture, forming groups such as the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects to further this goal. One of the Society's founders, Ernest Flagg (1857-1947), designed a building in 1896 that embodied many of the ideas that he had learned as a student at the Ecole. The original Singer Building (1896-98, demolished) at 149 Broadway (later reconstructed as part of the Singer Tower) 9 was a ten-story mansarded office building textured with polychromatic red brick and limestone trim and articulated visually by a tripartite scheme of base, midsection, and top. Labeled "modem French," it reflected the "revival of interest in eighteenth-century domestic architecture, especially the French hotel particulier, now adapted to the prestige office building. "10 The "modem French" style, already so prevalent in commercial architecture, became widely used in new hotel construction in the first decade of the twentieth century. One of the most notable was the Astor Hotel on the west side of Broadway between West 44th and 45th Streets (1904-09, Clinton & Russell, demolished). Slightly later than the Hotel Marseilles, it was a fully developed example of the "modem French" style with a brick and limestone facade terminating in an elaborate mansard roof. Further north on Broadway, the Ansonia was perhaps New York City's most sumptuous apartment hotel. The "modem French" style reached a grand expression in this eighteen-story building, clad in stone and crowned with a richly decorated mansard roof. At the same time on the Upper West Side the Manhasset, faced in brick and crowned with a mansard roof, was stylistically similar to the Hotel Marseilles. Harry Allan Jacobs, architect of the Hotel Marseilles, also promoted the "modem French" aesthetic in his designs. Similar to other contemporary commercial and hotel designs, the Hotel Marseilles is faced in brick trimmed with limestone and decorative ironwork and crowned with a mansard roof with overscaled terra-cotta dormers. It is an elegant example of the "modem French" style in hotel design illustrating the profound impact of the aesthetic principles taught at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts on American architecture. This eleven-story Beaux-Arts style apartment hotel is located at the southw

NYC - Hotel Carter
The Hotel Carter, at 250 West 43rd Street, is a 24-story, 1,000-room hotel located just a half block west of Times Square. Originally called the Dixie Hotel, it was built by the Harper Organization, Inc., in 1929. Ownership changed hands a few times before the Carter Hotels Corporation took over management in 1942 and rebranded the establishment in 1976 before selling it to Tran Dinh Truong the following year. A bus depot was opened in the Dixie Hotel in 1930 and handled 350 buses daily during peak season before closing in 1957. The Hotel Carter was named the dirtiest hotel in the U.S. in 2008--its third straight year at the top two of the list.

The Muppet Show: Music, Mayhem, and More! - The 25th Anniversary Collection
Those who spent (or are spending) their formative years watching Kermit and Miss Piggy dance their special interspecies dance will revel in this spectacular, positively historic new Muppets CD, released just in time for the 25th anniversary of Jim Henson's The Muppet Show. A 20-page insert booklet, complete with color photos, details the fascinating history of Muppet music. Remember when Sesame Street's rendition of Jeff Moss's "Rubber Duckie" hit the kiddie pop charts? This 27-song CD harvests favorite and lesser-known recordings from feature films and from the original The Muppet Show, stringing songs ranging from Piero Umiliani's "Mahna Mahna" to Tony Burrello's "There's a New Sound" (the sound that's made by worms) together with skits and grand pronouncements and goofy sound effects like an old-time vaudeville show. A stunning variety of musical styles are showcased in this witty, wonderful collection that reminds us that a world without Fozzie Bear and Gonzo and Kermit and Miss Piggy would be less fuzzy indeed. --Karin Snelson
