We're writing to enlist all of you to support us in protecting the interior spaces of one of New York's most celebrated and important Art Deco buildings, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Last week, along with two preservationists from the Historic Districts Council, we explored many of the original stunning interior Art Deco spaces in the legendary Waldorf.
Sitting in the lobby, mystified and frustrated, we were alarmed that this iconic space is about to be decimated if we don't unite immediately to encourage the Landmarks Preservation Commission to save it.
As we toured the beautiful rooms and hallways, the need to rally to preserve the Waldorf's interiors became incontestable. We wanted to share some of the spaces and architectural elements that will be lost forever if we don't make our voices heard today.
