Standard New York, USA
The High Line is the new renovation project in Manhattan, of the old railway turned a public park, which runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. The New York Standard Hotel is the 18 story building over the High Line. Andre Balazs’s latest New York property is designed by Polshek Partnership and became the new iconic building of Manhattan.
The retro style interiors, designed by Shawn Hausmanand Roman & Williams, strike you as soon as you enter the hotel from a yellow door. The lobby and lounge area are very sexy and interesting and the Standard Grill restaurant is full with hot and attractive crowd. Although some of them really compact, the 337 rooms have floor to ceiling windows and spectacular views of lower Manhattan, Hudson River and New Jersey cost. But be aware that your activities in the rooms ca be watched by the High Line passersby.
