The Viceroy - Page 17

I f Manhattan’s 57th Street is not quite the geographical center of the island, it is certainly the commercial and cultural heart of the city – home to some of the world’s most glamorous shopping, some of the city’s most beautiful and important architecture, and unparalleled cultural institutions. But, on blocks west of Sixth Avenue, this important east-west axis, full of buildings built in the late 19th and early 20th century, has lost some of its sheen in recent decades. This seems to be changing now, with several high-profile new buildings bringing energy back to the area. As part of this resurgence, Roman and Williams has designed the new Viceroy Hotel on a meaningful site at 120 West 57th Street that is part of the connective tissue that will begin to give the western half of 57th Street its glory back.
