Gorgeous at the crossroads of chic SoHo boutiques and the newly transformed Lower Manhattan, Colleen steps out of the Smyth and onto iconic West Broadway.  The Smyth is all about providing choices for its trendsetters, a nook to discreetly relax or the hippest spot to be part of the scene.

Bogardus Garden’s mission is to foster community interaction in lower Manhattan. Named after renowned 19th century pioneer of cast-iron architecture, James Bogardus, Bogardus gardens reminds us of the origin of the New York City skyline, the birth of the modern skyscraper.

Just off West Broadway, at the intersection of Hudson Street between Reade and Chambers, Colleen explains the history of this special spot. “It forms a triangle and the “Y” that stems from the park to The Smyth is the “Y” in Smyth!” She exclaims.

And we know exactly why she’s so excited. Offering an intimate luxury refuge with 100 newly renovated boutique rooms and suites by Gachot Studios, Smyth embodies TriBeCa’s vibrant history, passion for the arts, and contemporary lifestyle. It’s everything we want in an, art-filled, affluent Manhattan experience.

How about a room with a view? The balcony of The Penthouse in the Smyth looks out of the hustle and bustle of Manhattan’s grandest streets.

Enter TriBeCa’s living room, the Smyth’s warmly redesigned lobby, the perfect blend of calm and creative, reflective of those who call TriBeCa home. This swanky scene is great for melting into a good book or jumping into an interesting conversation.

“Evening Bar” at The Smyth is class redefined – a high-end hand-crafted cocktail lounge set in an art-deco scene. Ideal for patrons with taste … like our downtown diva, Colleen.

Gild Hall has never looked classier than with the Doll adorning it’s bookshelves. We love these properties and just keep coming back for the glamour and excitement they provide.
