The New Yorker Hotel, now a Wyndham hotel, is famous for its red neon “New Yorker” signs, which once again illuminate the skyline after years of dormancy. The iconic building is prominently located at the intersection of 34th Street and 8th Avenue. Its stepped form was the result of necessary compliance with New York City  zoning resolutions, intended to regulate skyscraper’s forms so daylight would still reach the street. Vertical indentions in the structure also admit light into its hotel rooms.

The building was renovated in the late 1990s, including the hotel rooms and elaborately designed lobby, though it also contains 29,000 of conference and event space. It became part of the Wyndham chain in 2014. The New Yorker Hotel is convenient to the Javits Center, Madison Square Garden and Penn Station, with convenient access to A, C, E, 1, 2, 3 and 9 trains.
