13. The Roxy Hotel at 2 Sixth Ave, Tribeca
Since TriBeCa stands for “Triangle Below Canal,” it makes sense that triangular shaped buildings would be in this part of town. The Roxy Hotel was formerly the TriBeCa Grand, created by Soho Grand owners Leonard and Emanuel Stern. It opened in 2000, one of the first major hotels in the neighborhood. Before then it was just a 10,000-square-foot triangular plot of land where Avenue of the Americas joined White St, Church St and Walker St.
In 2015 it became The Roxy, inspired by the 1920s movie theater and ‘90s dance club of the same name. With an in-house cinema, cocktail lounge, jazz club and more, art and music continue to be an important part of the building’s reputation.
