In 1891 a young composer convinced some of the world’s richest men to create music hall in an undeveloped part of Manhattan. Since then, Carnegie Hall’s stage has been graced by everyone from The Beatles to Aziz Ansari.

Pick up a pick-me-up. Locally crafted Pure Green cold-pressed juices like the Golden Girl (carrot, pineapple, lemon, ginger) are now available in our in-room Provisions Cabinets. Unlike centrifugal juicers and tradtional pasteurization, a hydraulic press extracts juice from fresh fruits and vegetables without added heat or oxygen so that live enzymes, vitamins, and minerals are preserved. This results in fresh, nutrient-rich juice that delivers sustained energy to help you keep up with the city that never sleeps.
