What happens to a restored 1879 Tenement in the heart of The Historic Lower East Side of Manhattan as a labor of love, sweat and artful design in order to present beauteous guestrooms from Quintessentials to Pied-A-Terres? The unmatched elegance and detail that is The Historic Blue Moon Hotel is what happens.
Offering upscale time travel from the moment one walks through the door. Randy Settenbrino, The Historic Blue Moon Hotel’s Artist and Developer is the restored Tenement’s ‘gift that keeps on giving’, having paid homage to the artifacts that aged well with Settenbrino’s ‘purpose to repurpose’ them. And what such artifacts wrought: Wrought Iron interposed into balconies; ‘the none-too-discreet’ charm of the elevator, and the fireplace mantles holding court at the entryway to the elevator as a feature on every floor; Depression-era Collages showcasing sporting events, report cards from schoolchildren, product advertisements, etc.-all have pride in place via restoration where their old home was lovingly transformed into their new home.
The Historic Blue Moon Hotel, ode to the jazz age as the hotel for the arts, is worthy of any and all airs from all frontiers. It’s the lair with flair. The
