NYC Award-Winning 1879 Tenement Historic Hotel, Room Availability Announced

Blue Moon Hotel Ltd (646-787-5503), a restored 1879 tenement building and historic hotel, announces new room availability. Guests can experience its preservation of art and history in the Lower East Side district of Manhattan.

The award-winning Blue Moon Hotel, which houses tenement fixtures and memorabilia that have been recovered and reintegrated into a new design by artist and developer Randy Settenbrino, now offers NYC visitors the chance to experience its history by booking one of its rooms.

The hotel's repurposed features include wrought iron window balconies made from the original fire escape, picture frames constructed from wood moldings, and elevator wall décor composed of ornate tin staircase materials. The 1879 main entrance doors have been reused as bathroom doors and salvaged mosaics decorate the communal areas.

Tenements were built in the mid to late 1800s to house New York’s booming population. By 1900, more than half of the city’s residents including most immigrants lived in the low-rise shared dwellings which were all too often cramped, overcrowded, and lacking proper facilities and amenities.

Between 1930 and 2001, the hotel’s tenement building was closed off, making it a 'time capsule from depression-era Manhattan’, as a spokesperson said. During the renovations, Settenbrino discovered historic personal effects and artifacts which he has preserved and transformed into artwork.

Inside the Blue Moon Hotel, guests can find themed collages decorating the walls. The designs are underlaid with Depression-era green stamps that were found in the hotel’s flooring. Salvaged items such as pawn shop tickets, newspaper clippings, sports memorabilia, and yearbook pages overlay the stamp backgrounds.

The hotel has 22 rooms and suites, each dedicated to a Jazz-era celebrity, with amenities such as full-length bathtubs, kitchenettes, and large TVs. There is a restaurant onsite together with the Sweet Dreams Café serving authentic Italian cuisine.

Randy Settebrino restored the Blue Moon Hotel over a 5-year period. His project has received accolades from National Geographic Traveler, New York Magazine Critics Pick, Citi Search’s Best Boutique Hotel, and Rizzoli’s Best 100 Little Hotels.

A satisfied guest said: “Based on a 1930s style, the hotel oozes character. Randy is an accomplished artist and his paintings and artistic flair give it a warm and welcoming appeal. If you’re looking for a special experience, a stay at the Historic Blue Moon Hotel will provide memories for life.”
