  • William Waldorf Astor razed his home at Fifth Avenue and Thirty-fourth Street to construct The Waldorf Hotel, which opened in March 1893.
  • After John Jacob Astor IV built the Astoria next door in 1897, the two hotels were run jointly as the Waldorf-Astoria.
  • The original hotel was closed on 3 May 1929 to accommodate construction of the Empire State Building.
  • A new Waldorf-Astoria was constructed on the block extending from Park Avenue to Lexington, between Forty-ninth and Fiftieth Streets and opened in 1931.
