Hotel New York is located at the top of the Kop van Zuid district in Rotterdam , the second largest city in the Netherlands, on the site of the formerly Holland America Line headquarters. Built in 1901, the building was the center of the Dutch-America Line, which brought about 1 million East European Jewish immigrants fleeing persecution to New York in the early 20th century.
Ships once departed from Wilhelmina Harbor here and sailed back and forth to New York for a hundred years. Tens of thousands of people were traveling from here to America, the ‘land of opportunity’, in hopes of finding a better life.
Hotel New York
Hotel New York is located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, which impresses with its modern buildings. The three-floor hotel is located at the tip of Wilhelminakade, a piece of land stretching out towards the water, in the Kop van Kuid area, surrounded by contemporary buildings. In the mid-1970s, sea travel declined as air travel became popular. Regular scheduled cruise lines carrying around 4 million passengers a year were terminated and the office was closed in 1982.
After the last ship to leave Rotterdam left port in 1971, The Holland America Line closed in 1982. The building remained empty until 1993 when it became the Hotel New York. Today people come here to sleep, eat, drink, marry, meet or celebrate.
