Buzzworthy: Crosby Street Hotel, New York’s Greenest, Opens in September

August 20, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

New YorkWe've been excitedly anticipating the debut of the new Crosby Street Hotel in Soho. The first foray into the U.S. market for Firmdale Hotels (behind London's Haymarket and Soho hotels), the New York hotel is slated for September 29. The goal is to make it the most eco-friendly hotel in Manhattan by using green construction methods and design. Rooms will have floor-to-ceiling windows and Kit Kemp-designed interiors. Curbed has the skinny on what's inside this 86-room property:
...a pewter bar, 100-seat screening room and leafy courtyard garden. The owners of the Crosby have enlisted artists from far and wide to create works for display on-site. A sunken cafe facing Lafayette Street will be fronted by a hand-forged iron fence and gates created by local sculptor James Garvey. No doubt guests and neighbors alike will be very glad when this one gets off the ground.
