In 1888, a small deli by the name of Iceland Brothers was established on Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side by the Iceland brothers. Katz’s Deli was moved across the street, to its present location, during the construction of the subway system. The vacant lot on Houston Street (pronounced "House-ton" after a Dutch emigrant of the same name) was home to barrels of meat and pickles until the present storefront facade was added between 1946-49.
Woven brick by brick into the heart of Manhattan's vibrant design epicenter, The Sago Hotel basks in the glow of New York City's most alluring metropolitan gem - The Lower East Side (LES).
As one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, The LES has historically been fertile ground for new and spontaneous forms of artistic expression. The Sago Hotel furnishes this legendary backdrop with cool sophistication, making it the preferred starting point from which to experience the city's diverse and eclectic phenomena.
