Celebrate Summer’s End at The New York Palace

As Labor Day Weekend approaches reality kicks in and we are faced with the fact that summer will be ending soon.  However, at The New York Palace, we see no reason why the end of summer should mean the end of indulgence, enjoyment and relaxation.

Celebrate Labor Day Weekend with us, while taking in a few NYC treasures.  Our first recommendation would be to visit the Central Park Conservancy Gardens located at 5th Ave and 105th Street as it is the ideal location for a Pomme Picnic. Be sure to pack whimsical treats, savory items and our summer line of frappes to cool you down. You could also simply stroll the gardens taking in all the history the garden has to offer or just enjoy a fun bike ride through the park.

The next all-day outing could take you to Queens, the home to The US Open, which is one of the most anticipated events of the tennis season. Fortunately, The New York Palace is not far away. The Billy Jean King National Tennis Center is just a short ride from the city by car or cab, or you can catch the E train at 5th Avenue and 53rd Street and transfer to the 7 train in Queens. Stop by Tavern on 51 for a quick cocktail before you leave for the match, or join us in the evening for a comfortable place to recount the day’s events. Tickets are still available for select matches so there’s plenty of time to be a part of the excitement.

The fashion world takes the city by storm with Fashion Week in NYC from September 4th through 11th. Runway shows include the talents of Rebecca Minkoff, Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischka and many more. Events will occur at venues throughout the city. Immerse yourself in intrigue as designers show off their most enticing creations. After the runway, join us at Trouble’s Trust where the cocktails are as captivating as the couture you’ve just viewed. The modern design and red lacquer walls create the perfect ambiance to discuss the evening’s most intriguing designs.

Mark the end of summer in New York City with us at The New York Palace. The city is overflowing with possibilities for entertainment and adventure. Just because the hot weather leaves doesn’t mean the excitement leaves with it.

Art and Culture Take Center Stage in The Towers Suites

As New York City art is so deeply ingrained in our culture, it seemed fitting that, second to the incredible city views, art is the focal point of design in The Towers.  We have honored New York City’s dedication to art by incorporating interesting and intriguing pieces into the décor of The Towers Suites.

Working with Nancy Sweeney, Principal of Art Advisory Service, The Palace commissioned an abstract aluminum sculpture from Matt Gil to greet guests in each Towers Executive Suite. Gil explains that the elegant curves of the sculpture offer insight into the world around us, inspired by objects and beings we see every day. The sculpture is entirely unique to The New York Palace, it is a luxury reserved for our guests.

You’ll find more New York City artwork in the living room of The Towers Executive Suite, featuring a piece from Deborah Zlotsky. The print is an installment from the series “Adjacent Possibilities” in which the artist investigates the reality of alternating one’s state of being by deviating from a designated path. Zlotsky explains, “Accidents repeatedly redirect me, blurring my understanding of the difference between accident and intention.” She uses color, shadows and shapes to illustrate this evolutionary experience offering complex possibilities.

The experience continues in each of The Towers guestrooms, where contemporary abstract prints offer a vibrant pop of color. Suzanne Ulrich uses a blend of collage and oil painting techniques to investigate the use of lines and shapes through layering and lifting. Her pieces no. 1757 and no. 1760 add a touch of intrigue to the decor. This installment is particularly interesting, marked by Ulrich as “by far my most mature body of work.”
