A legendary New York landmark, it has been reborn as the first luxury hotel in Times Square. Originally created by John Jacob Astor in 1906, The Knickerbocker is now a sophisticated urban sanctuary just blocks from Fifth Avenue, MoMA, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park. Italian tenor Enrico Caruso and American playwright George M. Cohan once resided here, while Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered for martinis at what was known as the 42nd Street Country Club. The hotel's culinary experience, led by Master Chef Charlie Palmer, emphasizes market-driven ingredients and vibrant, unexpected flavors, elevating his acclaimed American cuisine to create unparalleled dining options. The Knickerbocker Hotel combines contemporary and classic elements, bringing New York’s glitterati back to Times Square.
