Aman Goes Urban with New York Debut


Aman New York brings the brand’s renowned serenity to the centre of Manhattan. Housed in the Crown Building, the first home of the Museum of Modern Art, the luxury hotel group partnered with architect Jean-Michel Gathy to restore this design icon to its original splendour for its first property in the Big Apple, which is set to open later in the year.

Built in 1921, the Crown Building presides over the midpoint of Manhattan on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street overlooking Central Park. Rising 26 storeys from the boutique-lined street, the windows and terraces gaze out on the world’s most recognisable skyline.

Stressed-out urbanites can chill in the heart of the city at Aman Spa, a 2,300 sqm situated over three storeys. Open to guests, residents and Aman Club members, a dramatic 20 metre indoor swimming pool surrounded by fire pits and daybeds is its serene centrepiece. The hotel will also house a wine library and subterranean jazz club.
