Just when people think boutique as sleek, chic, having hit its peak, guess again, until to check into NYC’s Historic Blue Moon Hotel. This natural wonder, its origins as a tenement cum shops, was, as happenstance happens, a rediscovered tenement by Randy Settenbrino, who would go on to develop the tenement, using the space as his atelier, as his vision and reconstruct of the property was essentially his palette.

The Blue Moon Hotel prides itself as a gem of an antique in modern times for those who have an affinity and appreciation for luxe without the fuss. Randy Settenbrino has an innate trait honoring both the history of The Lower East Side of New York City and community, whether a tribute to the peddlers of yore, to breathing the pulse that beats along this part of “the city that never sleeps.”

The early years of such development became possible when Randy realized the tenement’s attention to detail, inlaid distinctive finishes, and memorabilia as remnants of lives gone by, were worthy enough to resuscitate with love to historic preservation-a project Randy knew must be undertaken through completion in order for his dream to become reality.

Creating an eight-story ode to such history under Randy’s sense and sensibility, was no fait accompli, even as the pandemic settled in country for two years. Randy took a resurgence to a new level, having made welcome additions to the hotel as a family effort, instilling in his sons and nephew, the value of a guest and a guest experience: PRICELESS.

The Blue Moon Hotel, located at 100 Orchard Street between Broome and Delancey, doesn’t just offer twenty-two rooms (including suites and penthouses), named for such noted performers as Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, The Marx Brothers, Fanny Brice, etc. What the Blue Moon does so well, is accommodate gracious living cum the vibrancy of the area’s renown vibe.

How many with visions of redeeming a property of great expectations, have been able to realize their dream, having only the best interests of the property, history and community at heart, making the hotel, if not It’s neighbors, a success. Randy Settenbrino, by patience and fortitude, created both the original Blue Moon Hotel as well as it’s post pandemic resurgence, a formidable display, and that’s no cliche.
