Edith Roth had wanted the intersection of Park Avenue and 57th Street renamed “Roth Corner” to honor the three generations of architects in her family whose designs, memorialized on this street corner, shaped so much of upper-class urbanism in New York. But other than a small plaque on the landmarked Ritz Tower, there is no civic tribute at 57th and Park to the architectural firm of Emery Roth and Sons, founded in 1902 by the then 32-year-old Hungarian Jewish immigrant.
