Size and Style
The Temple Court building, which The Beekman calls home, was built between 1881 and 1883 and made of granite, red Philadelphia brick, and tan Dorchester stone in the traditional Queen Anne style. The 10-story building now features 287 fully appointed rooms, including 38 suites and two signature penthouses within The Beekman’s iconic Turrets, each with private rooftop terraces overlooking One World Trade Center, the Woolworth Building, and City Hall Park. The 1881 landmark property, one of New York City’s last architectural treasures, was restored to its former glory by Randolph Gerner from Gerner Kronick & Valcarcel Architects. Additionally, The Beekman features the interior design of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.
The Beekman hosts a discerning, worldwide clientele on business and leisure trips seeking superior service and high-quality, luxury accommodation.
You Need To Know
The heritage of The Beekman is ingrained with some of history’s most influential cultural icons. Prior to the construction of the historic building, the site hosted a succession of creative and academic achievements including the New York City debut of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in November 1871 and the establishment of Clinton Hall, where writers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain honed their craft. Clinton hall, well-known as the base of the City’s intellectual set, is where New York University launched its inaugural classes in 1832. The Beekman’s façade was declared an official New York City landmark in 1998.
