The hotel was used to house the survivors of the RMS Titanic while the American inquest into the sinking was held. In 1944, the YMCA took over the building from the Seaman's Retreat Center as it was then called. Later known as The Jane West, and most-recently called the Riverview Hotel. The hotel was renovated by developers Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode in 2008 in partnership with BD Hotels, converting a facility which had become long-term housing for drug addicts and those down on their luck into an upscale hotel. During a period in the mid-nineteen eighties, the American drag performer RuPaul lived in the tower of the hotel. The building is a New York City landmark, designated in 2000. (en)
