ARTIFACT: Hotel Tudor Brochure, 1958

A look at a circa-1958 brochure from Hotel Tudor, newly rebranded as "an international hotel" following the United Nations' arrival in the neighborhood. The advertising copy spelled it out:
Because so many places are so close at hand, particularly the United Nations Headquarters, people from many lands make a point of staying at The Tudor. In the handsomely restyled lobby and public rooms, you'll hear languages from the world over.

The hotel's longtime traditional Colonial furniture has been replaced by sleeker, more contemporary furnishings.

The onsite restaurant, the Cameo Room. Oddly enough, it does not serve dinner. 

The oval bar in the cocktail lounge. We hope the drinks were as stiff as the advertising copy!
