Hotel Times Square Ashtray

$129.00

At the "Crossroads of the World," the 15-story, 1,000-room Hotel Times Square was completed in 1924 at the northeast corner of Eighth Avenue and 43rd Street. The place was briefly named for its builder, Henry Clama, who is honored by a plaque at the entrance. Renamed the Times Square Motor Hotel in 1963, the huge hostelry has had a checkered past, once a notorious welfare hotel. It has been redeveloped the largest supportive housing facility in the nation.

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.
