THE STANDARD EAST VILLAGE
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

Set amid the 19th-century tenement buildings of the East Village, the hotel’s 21-story glass-and-steel edifice defines the relationship between old and new architecture in New York. It is progressive and modern in design, yet recognizes its place among a traditional neighborhood. Architect Carlos Zapata imagined the building as a face, small at the neck and widening upwards, as a way to give it a distinct personality and create a dynamic, sculptural form that has been described as a glass wing over the Bowery.
