Plaza Hotel: Examples of Pre-War Architecture

Pre-war architecture refers to houses and buildings built between 1890 and 1940 -- before World War II -- when many people were moving from small, rural towns to big, sprawling cities. It was then that the housing industry became less about utility and more about appearance and trendiness. The luxurious, French renaissance-style Plaza Hotel in New York City, located at the south end of Central Park, was built in 1907. The Plaza became a landmark in 1988; it is the only New York City hotel to be designated as a National Historic Landmark.
