ESPN takes New Yorker space.

ESPN2, one of the world's leading cable sports broadcasters, has leased approximately 20,000 square feet at the New Yorker Hotel, according to Kevin Smith, the hotel's executive vice president and general manager. The term is for three years.

The sports channel's space includes offices, control rooms and a 5,000-square-foot broadcasting studio designed with a picture window, letting viewers watch a new ESPN2 program called Cold Pizza that premiered on October 20. The show features early morning interviews with sports celebrities and sports recaps.

"We have a rich, exciting history of television studios that have taken space in our building," says Mr. Smith. "We're delighted to welcome such a dynamic, crowd-pleasing tenant."

ESPN was represented by Atlantic Video, a production company that works with ESPN in Washington, DC as well.

New Yorker guests are offered the utmost in conveniences. There is an ATM and currency exchange in the lobby; three restaurants, one of which is open round-the-clock; a state-of-the-art fitness center; and a concierge desk to arrange theater tickets and sightseeing tours. HBO movies and sports events are available free of charge in all rooms.

Located at 34 th Street and Eighth Avenue, the New Yorker Hotel also offers another hard-to-come-by advantage--geographic desirability.

Combined with the hotel's other attributes, its within a block of Penn Station and Macy's, and easily accessible to the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and a reinvigorated Times Square. The New Yorker is also the closest large hotel to the Javits Convention Center.
