Renowned modernist architect Morris Lapidus originally designed the hotel. The hotel was designated a historical landmark in 2005. Marilyn Monroe made history here in 1955 while filming for the "Seven-Year Itch." Monroe was posing in front of the hotel when a gust of air from a subway grate blew up the skirt of her white halter dress.
