Though the hotel retains much of the original structure of the former factory building in which it is housed, there is one slight change. In order to open up the rooms and provide a better view, the back of the building was completely stripped away, and replaced by floor-to-ceiling casement factory windows. These will help establish the "vintage" vibe of the place while also allowing for some killer views of Manhattan from the west side of the building.
That vintage factory look will also be manifested in the lobby's 20 foot ceilings, original wooden beams, and exposed brick.
Down in the restaurant (which is accessed off the lobby), much of the hotel's buzz will center around Andrew Tarlow (Diner, Marlow & Sons, Roman's), the new head of food and beverage for the self-proclaimed "foodie hotel," which as we mentioned before, promises "whole animal" food.
Nothing like a heaping plate of pork cracklings to go with that killer view.
