The American Bar, New York 1930s


The American Bar was in the Times Square Hotel on 43rd Street west of Broadway. It was built in 1922 as the Claman Hotel catering to single men. It was renamed Times Square Hotel in 1923 and had one floor reserved for women. In the early 1970s, the hotel became home to the mentally ill and troubled Vietnam War veterans and it was acquired in 1991 by Common Ground to offer affordable housing for working professionals and the formerly homeless, some of whom live with HIV/AIDS, mental illness, or physical disabilities.
