Paley Park! A true hidden midtown gem.

Nice pics, JR2. This building has some great views.

The shape is simple, but the materials are stunning. I wonder if all of the side panels will have the lighting that the ones on the lower floors currently have.

Today


Nice Bentley parked outside.

Super slick base and interiors

World's First Baccarat Hotel Is Dripping With Crystal, Naturally

Quote:
Three years after its initial conception as Midtown's Dark Crystal, the Baccarat Hotel is finally open and accepting guests on West 53rd Street. (The remaining condos in the tower above are on the market, seeking buyers.) Naturally, the glitzy, glittery space named after the top-shelf crystal brand is chock-full of the stuff, with chandeliers galore. HotelChatter took a tour, and the hotel's official website offers a host of glimpses inside. Not only is the lobby wall lined with 1,800 glasses, each one of the 114 guest rooms has a different glass outside, enclosed in a display case. Room rates start at $729 per night, but a quick search for weeknights in June result in one suite that costs $18,875/night.





Quote:
The wall of the lobby is made of 1,800 Baccarat Harcourt glasses, with an LED light inside each one. Basically, it's a light show.

This tower is a dullard from the outside. ALl the focus and $$$ were directed toward sthe inside. A horrific trend that began soon after the bautiful old city of NY was raped by modernist boxy skyscrapers in the 20th century.

I think it's alright. A box tower done right.

I agree its a very nice tower for the footprint they had to work with. A simple yet elegant rectangular tower in the heart of modtown manhattan.
