This year is the hotel’s 140th anniversary and during the near decade and a half of its existence, its seen its share of good and bad times. It’s been rebuilt four times, hosted presidents, dignitaries and ordinary folk of every stripe, and become the go-to for luxury accommodations on Long Island. During the entirety of its existence, the Garden City Hotel has resided in the heart of the village, providing a degree of panache and status to the surroundings while bringing in a steady source of revenue. While Fortuna Realty Group President Morris Moinian bought it for $42 million in 2012 and subsequently poured $30 million worth of renovations and counting toward its restoration, he and his staff have also made inroads into developing more of a relationship with the Village of Garden City. With all these positive developments going on, expect plenty more longevity with this crown jewel of a landmark.
