Photo by myself near the Plaza Hotel, at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street.
I couldn't resist taking this photo of this well-known street corner while I was in the neighborhood last week.
Taxi cabs and horse drawn carriages were waiting patiently for the light to turn. Fortunately for pedestrians and horses, it wasn't too cold.
I have to wonder what it's like to be in one of those little turrets at the corner. I hope it's sitting room or an incredible bathroom with a view from the tub!
Once completely a luxury hotel, almost one third of the units were sold as condominiums by 2008. Currently offered are a one-bedroom for $4.2 million and a one-bedroom rental for $13,900 per month.
Rates for hotel rooms start from $500/night and go upwards to over $2,000 per night, depending on whether you're getting a room or a suite.
