Eloise never lived here…
The Plaza Hotel (built 1927) in Camden, New Jersey, is no more.
Heavy equipment started work on razing the building on Tuesday, February 25. The demolition crew anticipates leveling the site in a few weeks.
A local member of the Camden County Historical Society calls the building’s demise another case of demolition by neglect, blaming absentee owners for the loss.
According to an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, “The seven-floor brick hotel in its heyday featured a German dining room and live music in the ballroom. Its proximity to the RCA recording studio made it a common place for visiting musicians to stay.”
