This outstanding edifice was ommissioned by the New York Insurance Company 1n 1894, the New York Palace was built according to the plans of Alajos Hauszmann, Flóris Korb and Kálmán Giergl.  It was recently renovated  in 2006 and is part of the Boscolo New York Palace Hotel.

The first thing you notice when entering is a large  self standing sign, next to the  hostess podium, stating “NO PHOTOGRAPHS.’  Why!  Everything afterword, other then the decor, consists of a plane, overpriced menu,  a stylized pop and jazz soundtrack, and  poor service.

The room itself is lavish rococo which when renovated, consisted of guilding  everything.  Except the too modern chairs and tables- which fail to blend into the style in which it was renovated.

Unfortunately, no atmosphere remains of the old days  the stories about

It’s worth going to see the building and have a coffee to kill the curiosity.  If nothing else, the wall sconces outside the door are worth the trip! (photos below).
