U.S. News & World Report: New York City Hotels Where History Was Made
Q&A Residential Hotel
It may not have the same recognition of Park Avenue, but Pine Street in Lower Manhattan is one of Manhattan’s oldest streets. Rising 950 feet and 66 stories, 70 Pine St. was once the third tallest building in the world. In 2011, the property’s exterior and interior – featuring ornate art deco carvings – were designated historical landmarks by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Today the building is home to the Q&A Residential Hotel. The property’s themed suites honor some of the greatest inventions and visionaries in recent history with larger-than-life art installations of patents for everything from windshield wipers to the blueprints of the 1906 aircraft flown by the Wright Brothers.
