The Empire Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt New York hotel at 109 East 42nd Street between Park and Lexington avenues has just completed ia $12 million renovation, according to the Hyatt Hotels Corporation. The 18,000-square-foot space was redesigned by Looney and Associates. The nearly-century-old ballroom, once known as the Commodore Ballroom, has been an historic site, particularly for political figures — it’s where John F. Kennedy accepted the Democratic nomination for president 50 years ago and where Hillary Clinton once celebrated her successful senate race. TRD
