Work in Progress, at the Plaza Hotel

The Plaza Hotel, nyc
Photo by myself around 59th Street and Fifth Avenue.

There is some major renovation work going on on the exterior of the Plaza Hotel, near Central Park South.

The entire east side of the building is covered with an architectural drawing showing what the building should look like. The drawing is printed on a fine mesh, so that people inside the building can still look out their windows.

Behind the drawing must be a whole wall of scaffolding, keeping the mesh in place. The Plaza Hotel is part hotel, part condominiums.

I think people who live there full time have use of room service too, so they can be pampered year-round. There are separate entrances for guests and residents. The hotel entrance is on this side.

I took this photo while passing by in a cab. (Just tell a cab driver to go to 'the Plaza', and they'll know what you mean.)

Wow! - I hope this apartment living with room service here at the Plaza is still around when I retire. One of my favorite things about vacation is room service.
& thanks for posting this very interesting photograph Kitty. I love how the drawing on the Plaza Hotel looks very close to the color of the sky.
