T he Crown Building, a 1921 jewel in midtown Manhattan — and the original home of the Museum of Modern Art — has been restored to its original splendor and transformed into a magnificent city hotel, the Aman New York. Located on Fifth Avenue just below Central Park, the elegantly tiered limestone building designed by Warren & Wetmore has one of the city's most beautiful gilded rooftops. For Aman New York, longtime Aman collaborator Jean-Michel Gathy of Belgian design and architecture firm Denniston created a serene enclave with a double-height atrium with multilayers of textured ceiling and dreamy Asia- inspired wall panels. The hotel's 83 suites are among the largest in New York City with warm, minimalist furnishings. The expansive Aman Spa is set over three floors and includes a 20-meter pool, and fitness facilities, plus two private Spa Houses. The hotel is the first to house a members-only Aman Club with lounges and private garden terrace. Aman Branded Residences, a collection of 22 private homes, are located on the upper floors. A striking wraparound Garden Terrace restaurant on the 14th floor offers year-round alfresco dining. There's also Arva, an Italian restaurant, and Nama, a washoku Japanese restaurant. Suites from $3,200.
