Sho-tel Wars: East Side versus West Side in Exhibition Game

New, 7 comments

The Grumbler recently spotted this "gentleman" guest [NSFW] at the Standard Hotel giving High Line visitors a show, attempting to display his busy-ness by multi-tasking a phone call and some manhood a mano self-gratification. This has been standard at the Standard since the hotel's 2009 opening, when the revealing glassy design appeared to be dirty on purpose. Still, the Grumbler wonders "Will these highjinks make their way east to the new (more quiet and introspective) Standard East Village?" We can attest that not only has the former Cooper Square Hotel already bared this facet of its see-through facade, but the Bowery Hotel down the street has taken window displays to a new lower level.
