Vanderbilt YMCA Hotel New York details and booking
Description: ""Located in Manhattan's East Side, the Vanderbilt YMCA offers surprisingly low rates for its guest accommodations. The Guest Rooms include 370 single and twin rooms, and feature TV, air conditioning, housekeeping services, use of safe-deposit boxes and 24-hour security.Our multilingual staff can point you in the direction of the many points of interest within walking distance. The Vanderbilt Y is a short walk to Grand Central Station, which provides the 4, 5, 6, 7 and S subway lines, and Metro-North Railroad for points outside of Manhattan.Once known as the """"Railroad Y,"""" the Vanderbilt YMCA was established in November 1875 in the basement of the New York Rail Station to provide housing for the nation's railroad men. Each year, thousands of railroad workers traveled through New York City, requiring overnight accommodations. Soon, the five centers that made up the """"Railroad Y"""" did not offer enough space, so in 1866, Cornelius Vanderbilt, a generous entrepreneur, gave the Railroad Branch a home of its own at 361 Madison Avenue. In 1932, with two more moves under its belt, the """"Railroad Y"""" made its final transport to 224 East 47 Street, where it still stands today. On 47th Street, the """"Railroad Y"""" quickly became a neighborhood YMCA. Membership was offered to community residents and the building was christened the Vanderbilt YMCA to honor the family instrumental in the development of this facility. Descendants of Cornelius Vanderbilt were honored in May 1996 at the Vanderbilt YMCA and a bronze plaque was erected on the site to thank the Vanderbilt family. Today, the Vanderbilt YMCA continues to be community-minded by serving our neighbors in many ways. Through respect, responsibility, caring and honesty, we offer programs that enrich the community. Our extensive health and wellness facility and youth programs answer to the needs of adults, seniors, families, teens, and children. It is with vim and vigor that the Vanderbilt YMCA looks toward the future with an eye on the past and feet planted firmly in the present. We welcome you to our YMCA.
