Cream corkscrew from the Vista Hotel with “NEW YORK VISTA | Operated by | HILTON INTERNATIONAL” printed in golden text.
Opening in 1981, the Vista International was the first hotel to open in lower Manhattan since the 1830s. Located in 3 World Trade Center at the base of the Twin Towers, it was managed by Hilton International and included meeting spaces, eating establishments, and a gym. It was sold in 1995 to Marriott following extensive renovations resulting from damage caused by the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The building was completely destroyed on 9/11.
