The Barbizon House for Women

Now known as Barbizon 63, The Barbizon Home For Women was originally a residential hotel for “women only” from the late 1920’s to the early 1980’s. The hotel was designed to give women a safe housing haven during the time so many women were flocking to the city for career opportunities. In the early 1980’s it became a more traditional hotel when it started allowing men as guests. After a brief stint as, The Melrose Hotel, the building was completely gutted and redesigned as modern condominiums under the new name, Barbizon 63.
