Situated in the heart of Manhattan at the crossroads of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, overlooking Central Park, Aman New York will occupy the iconic Crown Building. Embodying the splendour of the Gilded Age and dynamism of Fifth Avenue, the Crown Building is one of the most architecturally significant buildings in Manhattan.
As it embarks on a new chapter, the Crown Building – formerly the first home of the Museum of Modern Art – will undergo a monumental transformation, which will see it fully restored to its original splendour and imbued with the spirit of Aman.
Aman New York will comprise not only guest rooms and suites, but will also house the first urban Aman Residences, a collection of just 20 incomparable private homes. It will offer the unrivalled, intuitive service for which Aman is celebrated, providing peace and privacy in the most energetic and engaging city in the world. This new urban sanctuary, together with its fully serviced Aman Residences, will open in 2020.
Open to guests, residents and Aman Club members, a 2,000 square metre Aman Spa fills three storeys, with a dramatic 25 metre indoor swimming pool surrounded by fire pits and daybeds as its centrepiece. Two Spa Houses will provide guests with an all-encompassing spa journey, encompassing a double treatment room, sauna and steam rooms, and an outdoor terrace with cabana, daybed and fireplace.
Restautant and bar:
From the subterranean Jazz Bar to the wraparound Garden Terrace overlooking Central Park, Aman New York abounds with sociable spaces for dining, drinking and relaxing. Arva, the convivial Italian restaurant, is complemented by Nama – Aman’s interpretation of Japan’s washoku dining tradition – as well a Piano Bar, Cigar Bar, Wine Library and subterranean Jazz Club.
