Morning View – Waldorf-Astoria

Here’s the Lexington Avenue entrance of the Waldorf-Astoria at 50th Street. (The grander entrance is on Park Avenue.) The residence for the American ambassador to the UN is on the 42nd floor. The Waldorf was originally located on the site where the Empire State Building was built. The first three times I visited NYC as an adult, I stayed at the Waldorf, a treat I could only afford because my sister was a Hilton executive (the Waldorf-Astoria is part of the Hilton chain.) A new Waldorf is planned for Disney World.
