When Ian Schrager enlisted friend and artist Julian Schnabel to re-create the public spaces in the 185-room Gramercy Park Hotel, what he got was a far departure from the slick, ironic style of his previous properties. Instead, Schnabel’s vision was personal and textured; the lobby features a rotating collection of impressive 20th-century art—works by Twombly, Basquiat, Hirst, and of course, Schnabel’s own—mixed with Moroccan-tiled floors, hand-carved fireplaces, and a custom Venetian glass chandelier.
