Hidden Vintage New York Hotel Menus Unearthed

I found these spectacularly beautiful menus from The New Yorker Hotel when I was on assignment for Interior Design magazine. Joe Kinney, the hotel’s chief engineer informal archivist, has over the years amassed scores of menus, door hangers and other hotel memorabilia, most of which date from the 30s and 40s.

To see more of menus, go to Big World Magazine.
