Maritime Hotel, NYC
363 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011
Built in 1966, Photographed in 2005
Guest rooms built for members of a sailors' union - each with windows shaped like portholes - and later
used by runaway teenagers and then by visitors from China are now occupied by hip visitors to New
York in what is now the Maritime Hotel.
The hotel is the latest incarnation of the white-tile 12-story structure that occupies the blockfront on the
east side of Ninth Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets.
