1. Gansevoort Hotel Located on Ninth Ave and 13th Street, Gansevoort Hotel is an anchor in Manhattan’s vibrant Meatpacking District, which has transformed from an industrial district into a cultural hub for fashion, design, culinary excellence and the arts. The property is steps away from the Hudson River, High Line, Little Island, Whitney Museum of American Art, Chelsea Market, premium shopping and dining. The property has recently completed a full top-to-bottom renovation touching all floors, accommodations and public spaces.
2. Gansevoort Pool Take a dip! Open year-round, the heated outdoor rooftop pool offers a unique New York City experience and expansive views of Manhattan's Skyline.
3. Gansevoort Hotel Building Gansevoort guests feel the evolution of the property as soon as they step foot into the new 1,700-square-foot lobby and common area that showcases cutting edge art and design. Designed with intention, the space features warm wood finishes and brass paired with a porcelain tiled floor in a concrete tone that mimics the neighborhood’s iconic cobblestone streets.
4. Bookcase With Banksy Art is a critical piece of the Gansevoort hotel’s identity and experience. Each selection displayed throughout the property showcases a different aspect of the hotel’s personality and was intentionally chosen for the reinvention of Gansevoort. From the moment guests enter the lobby, they are greeted with original works from Banksy and Richard Hambleton, both icons of street art. Banksy’s “Flying Copper” is an original on cardboard and was a featured piece at his 2003 Turf War exhibition, a precursor to his politically driven works.
5. Poliform Penthouse What has always been one of the most desirable penthouses in New York City, The Poliform Penthouse at Gansevoort Meatpacking has an entirely new look, completed in partnership with Italian contemporary furniture designer, Poliform. The space itself is a 1,700 sq. ft. duplex designed to impress and constructed both for a comfortable stay - whether short or long-term - and built to entertain. Striking 30-foot floor-to-ceiling windows greet guests upon entering. A floor-to-ceiling fireplace balances the room, flanked by dramatic bookcases on either slide as well as Adi Oren’s “Motion Series” and Daniel Mazzone’s “Blue Lady” art pieces. Also on display are works from renowned artists Frank Stella and Mick Rock. Poliform tapped into their network of international designers to collaborate on the products, and each element is shoppable.
6. Gansevoort Rooftop Gansevoort Rooftop is unique within the Meatpacking district bars - it’s an escape for hotel guests and downtown locals alike. Take in the 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River and enjoy innovative, refreshing cocktails paired with fresh light bites.
7. Gansevoort plaza Located at the crossroads of the cultural hub that is the Meatpacking District, this public plaza is right in front of Gansevoort Hotel where you can dine al fresco, people-watch, and even enjoy occasional live performance event.
8. Little Island Little Island is a new public park that provides New Yorkers, and its visitors, with a unique urban oasis—a place for experiences that ignite imagination, foster spontaneity and play, and support camaraderie and connection. The park features lush landscapes with rolling hills, an open plaza for community programming, an amphitheater that hosts a range of events, walking paths and dazzling views of New York City. Little Island is one of the latest additions to the fourmile-long Hudson River Park, which runs from Chambers Street to W. 59th Street.
9. Chelsea Market Located in the heart of New York City’s Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market is one of the world’s greatest indoor food and retail marketplaces. The market’s collection of diverse merchants makes a lively marketplace where one can shop the region’s finest fishes, take home prime cuts of meat, and load up on artisanal cheeses, fresh produce, and imported Italian dry goods. It’s the savory meals enjoyed at Chelsea Market, just as much as the fresh ingredients bought there that make it a beloved destination for locals and travelers alike.

10. High Line The High Line is both a nonprofit organization and a public park on the West Side of Manhattan. Built on a historic, elevated rail line, the High Line was always intended to be more than a park. Take a walk through gardens, view art, experience a performance, savor delicious food, or connect with friends and neighbors-all while enjoying a unique perspective of New York City.
