CITY GUIDE / NEW YORK / HOTELS / THE STANDARD

Young, sexy, and pulsating... the Standard hotels in Los Angeles and Miami have carved a unique niche in the hospitality market. The latest outpost to open is the Standard New York, in the heart of the Meatpacking District and straddling – literally - the High Line, a once derelict railroad that is being transformed into Manhattan's newest public park. Developed by über-hotelier André Balazs (of Chateau Marmont and The Mercer fame) and designed by Todd Schliemann of Polshek Partnership, the new glass-fronted building is already a Downtown landmark. Reports so far suggest the Standard New York is as fun and lively as its predecessors, but note that not all the public areas will be functional until summer 2009.
