Blue Moon Hotel, New York City

Blue Moon Hotel in Manhattan
Erected in 1879, the Blue Moon building was boarded up from the 1930s to 2001, making it a time capsule from Depression-era Manhattan. As part of his renovation, Randy Settenbrino salvaged the tenement’s fixtures and artifacts, scattering them and their likenesses throughout his cozy inn. (Leo Sorel / Special to The Times)

The Blue Moon’s repurposed relics hit you as soon as you walk in: Lobby walls are adorned with etched marble mantles, the elevator walls are covered with pieces from a tin ceiling and a cast-iron stove has been reworked into a serving table for breakfast (which is included in the room rates). (Leo Sorel / Special to The Times)
