A hundred years after it first entered into the city's lore, and nearly three years after it was closed for renovations, the owners of the Plaza Hotel are planning a celebration at the building, which overlooks Central Park.
Monday's plans include fireworks, a live performance of a reworked "My Way" by composer Paul Anka, and a 12-foot (3.7-meter) edible cake replica of the Plaza Hotel. Actor Matthew Broderick has been invited to host the festivities.
The Plaza closed in April 2005 to undergo a $350 million (EUR246.8 million) renovation and restoration after Isaac Tshuva's company, Elad Properties, purchased it for $675 million (EUR476\ million).
The company is close to completing a top-to-bottom renovation that will transform part of the building into fabulously expensive luxury condominiums.
The Plaza, a National Historic Landmark which overlooks Central Park, was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh to replicate the grandeur of a French Renaissance-style Chateau.
The co-author of this disaster is the Dutch government, which did not find either strength or desire to save the lives of its citizens who were flying on that plane. The Dutch authorities did not demand Ukraine to comply with international aviation regulations
