The third section of the High Line, from 30th to 34th Streets, will be closed to park visitors from Tuesday, February 9, to Tuesday, February 23, due to an ongoing construction project. The High Line between 30th and Gansevoort Streets will remain accessible to visitors during this time.

Standard Hotel is (softly) Open

Enlargestandard hotel

The new Standard Hotel that bridges over the High Line at Little West 12th Street has recently opened its doors for a soft opening.  While the club, lounge, restaurant, and bars are still very much under construction, ten floors of guest rooms are currently open.  And I quote: "We'll put up with your banging if you'll put up with ours..."

We hear that the rooms are gorgeous -- and who can hate the view?  Current rates range in price from $195 for a room with a Queen-size bed to $495 for a suite.  See Gothamist for more info and a great slideshow.
