Henry Janeway Hardenbergh (1847-1918) was an American architect known for his designs of luxury hotels and apartment buildings during the Gilded Age that were often done in the French Renaissance Style. Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Hardenbergh apprenticed under famous Danish architect Detlef Lienau in New York from 1865 to 1871 when he opened his own practice. His work on the Rutgers College campus and the Vancorlear Apartments catapulted him into the public eye with commisions to complete large projects such as the Dakota Apartments, the Waldorf and Astoria Hotels (demolished for the Empire State Building), and the Willard Hotel.
