☞ REMEMBER: The Winthrop Hotel circa 1905

A photo from 1905 shows the Winthrop Hotel that used to stand over on a corner of 125th Street before a more modern structure would arrive about eight years later.  Today the Hotel Theresa now stands as the local landmark on the southwest corner of 7th Avenue and 125th Street but now serves as office space for Columbia University.  The Theresa opened in 1913 and was considered the tallest building in Harlem for many decades after.
