In the historic crown building, a new Aman opens its doors in Manhattan. This will be a new go-to place of the city with its residences, suites, and luxurious central Park.
When a new property of the Aman group is designed in New York, it’s huge news for the industry and local community, especially with its iconic position at the end of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in the center of Manhattan. So, no doubts that Aman New York has a prosperous future, being the third holding of the glorified hospitality chain in the US, after Amangani in Jackson Hole and Amangiri in Utah.
Ensconced in a restored picture of the Royal Crown Building, a Big Apple landmark has overlooked Central Park since it was built here in 1921. The 26-story structure that used to house the Museum of Modern Art (the famous MOMA) is now a gleaming tower of sheer gorgeousness.
The Aman New York features the outstanding Neoclassical Beaux-Arts style and history of the Crown Building but also shines with its own “Amanesque” spirit. The hotel opening was scheduled to coincide with the building’s 100th-anniversary celebrations in the third quarter of 2021.
Planned by Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston, the Aman New York guarantees 83 exquisitely stylized suites and a few interior and outside restaurants. These will include Arva – a happy Italian eatery, Nama – a tribute to Japan’s washoku dining tradition, and the twist Garden Terrace where you can savor signature juice as you stare across the Park. Music and entertainment will make the spirit happy, be it at the basement Jazz Bar, the Piano Bar, or Cigar Bar and Wine Library.
