Design Without Borders
The Greenwich Hotel, in the heart of Tribeca, is a hub for creative art and design. The chic 88-room boutique hotel, owned by actor Robert de Niro, is covered in art, reclaimed wood, and rare treasures from all over the world. Each room and suite is enriched with Moroccan-, French-, and Japanese-inspired interiors, so that no two rooms are alike. The 6,800-square-foot Tribeca Penthouse, inspired by the Japanese aesthetic principle of wabi-sabi, or the acknowledgement of transience and imperfection, displays thoughtful artwork throughout, like original ceramic vases designed by renowned Japanese artisan Shiro Tsujimura.
The hotel’s eclectic, worldly design vision is apparent in the rest of the hotel too. From the 250-year-old bamboo farmhouse ceiling above the large subterranean pool, to the towering four-story portrait of James Dean by American street artist, JR, wheat pasted on the wall adjacent to the courtyard.
The Whitney Museum of American Art is one of New York’s can’t-miss spots for modern art aficionados.
An Exclusive View Of The Whitney Museum
In keeping with the hotel’s passion for the arts, The Greenwich Hotel is pleased to arrange for an experienced guide to lead guests through one of the most celebrated museums in the world, the new campus of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Designed by architect Renzo Piano, and located between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney boasts more than 22,000 works by over 3,000 artists displayed as never before. It’s an experience the most advanced collectors are sure to enjoy. Explore 63,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibition space, and take in views of the Hudson River and downtown beyond the Whitney's definitive collection of American art.
After your tour of the Whitney, move on to a series of dynamic galleries in nearby Chelsea, just a short walk away along the High Line. You might even acquire new piece for your personal collection as the tour is tailored to suit each guest’s artistic preferences.
