On West 34th Street lies the Hotel New Yorker. This Art Deco hotel was the largest in New York when built in 1930, with its 2,500 rooms. Big bands led by Benny Goodman, Woody Herman and the Dorsey Brothers played here. Nikola Tesla, the famous Serbian inventor and physicist, died in this hotel in 1943. After decades of decline, it was bought by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church in 1976. Woody Allen filmed scenes for Radio Days and Bullets Over Broadway in its ballroom. West 34th Street has also been, since 1902, home of Macy’s, the famous department store.
