High-Line Art and Luxurious Renovations: This Week in NYC
Written By Irina Faifman, Associate at Rakita Realty
This week Manhattan experienced a cooling down in weather, but a warming up of beautiful sights to see! This year Manhattan-ites and tourists alike get to experience a year long art exhibition on the High Line that was released last week. The exhibition features nine internatial artists who play around with traditional ideas regarding the art form of the bust. Until June 14, visitors to the High Line can submit ideas for which person they believe should be sculpted in bust form on the park. Officials will then choose five finalists and the public will vote for their favorite, who will be created by a commissioned artist and installed on a pedestal already prepared for the bust. Interesting!
's Â atÂ Architect Lee Mindel chose to preserve an â€˜old worldâ€™ feel when renovating, so the building will host luxurious pre-war elements including gorgeous oak parquet floors, oak-panneled walls, coffered ceilings, bay windows and wood-burning fireplaces made of Travertine marble.
Whether it is apartment hunting or sightseeing that drives you outside this week, be sure to head down to MeatPacking district to enjoy the exhibition!
