Hotel Dixie Ashtray

$169.00

The Hotel Dixie opened in 1930, the same year as the Chrysler Building. It had entrances on 42nd Street and 43rd Street, and the Central Union Bus Terminal occupied the basement. The space was so confined that buses couldn't turn around, so there was a large turntable that rotated to give the buses access to their different platforms when they arrived and to point them to the exit ramp when they left. In 1937, the hotel raised its price for a single room, to $2.75 from $2.50.

Once icons of hospitality and glamour, ashtrays are part of Americana that now belongs to the past. Offering an ashtray from the golden age of glamorous smoking, now out of use along with cigarettes, but desirable for its connection to the culture of New York City in the twentieth century.
