7. Vaulted Ceilings of the American Radiator Building’s Former Showroom Can Be Seen

The basement of the American Radiator Building was originally designed as a large showroom, where boilers, furnaces and other heating products were showcased to the public. In 1929, following a merger between the American Radiator Company and the Standard Sanitary Corporation, the showroom was renovated to display plumbing wares and bathroom fixtures.

Today, the vaulted tile ceilings of the former showroom can be seen inside Bryant Park Hotel’s Cellar Bar, a gothic cavernous lounge known for its specialty cocktails.
