The Commodore Hotel

 The Commodore Hotel designed by Warren & Wetmore c. 1919 at East 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City.  Click HERE for more on the Hotel Commodore which still stands in an extremely altered fashion as the Grand Hyatt New York seen HERE on google street view.

Regarding Trump's alterations I'm reminded of the line from Lillian Helllman's 'The Little Foxes': "There are people who eat the earth and eat all the people on it like in the Bible with the locusts."
