Staying in the borough of Queens has long been considered a no-go for tourists visiting New York. The launch of the 108 room Boro Hotel in Long Island City this month, will most likely change this perception.
From its inviting lobby, which features a library of Strand Bookstore to the café bar that serves complimentary breakfast to guests, Boro Hotel owes its stylish interiors to the design firm Grzywinski + Pons, who built upon the building’s austere concrete skeleton with painted hardwood panelling, leather furniture and flashes of colour to add warmth to the space.
Plumen lighting fixtures; Jasper Morrison cork stools for Vitra and custom-designed furniture adorn each room which all feature panoramic views of Manhattan and Queens. Boro Hotel also includes a restaurant, an outdoor terrace and a rooftop bar.
