Jumeirah Essex House

The same year the new Waldorf=Astoria opened as the largest hotel in the world (1931), the Essex House overlooking Central Park South was completed as the tallest tower of the city. Conceived in the golden twenties and born after the great crash, the large Central Park hotels (St. Moritz and Barbizon Plaza) survived as apartments for the super rich and as hotels for the not-so-glamorous. The Essex House was one of the first hotels in New York to offer
a ‘Sunday Brunch’ for walkers in Central Park
The opening party was again a sign of unlimited superlatives, 1000 guests in black tie and long dress celebrated the opening of the hotel.
