asset class type



Life Hotel's story begins in the late 1800s, when the publisher John Ames Mitchell decided to build a prestigious new office building for his magazine, the original "Life" (the humor publication that preceded the photography weekly). He wanted the headquarters to be an inspiration for the writers, illustrators, and graphic designers who created the magazine, and hired the esteemed architecture firm Carrere & Hastings to design the building. In an ornate, former LIFE Magazine office building dating from 1894, this boutique hotel in Midtown is a 5-minute walk from the 34 Street - Herald Sq Station subway and 4 minutes' walk from the Empire State Building. The individually decorated rooms feature brass fixtures and wrought-iron beds mixed with modern touches such as free Wi-Fi, and 60-inch flat-screen TVs with access to social gaming.
