Cool NYC Architecture
Morgan & Owens
André Balazs’s fourth Standard hotel, designed by Polshek
Partnership Architects, is on a Meatpacking District site surrounded by
low-lying warehouses, which means practically every room has great
skyline or Hudson River views. It looks cool from the outside, too.
(The Standard recently won the Municipal Arts Society’s Best New
Building award.) And you can enter the High Line nearby at Gansevoort
and Washington Streets.
