MID­TOWN FUNK

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life Travel -

Cen­trally lo­cated on Madi­son Square Park in the Flat­iron District, this land­mark clock-tower build­ing, con­structed in 1909, was the world’s tallest build­ing un­til 1913. Now a su­per sexy, 273-room ho­tel with just eight mahogany-pan­elled rooms on each floor, it feels like a mod­ern, airy ver­sion of a 1930s mem­bers club. The black-and­white pho­to­graphs of celebri­ties through the ages that adorn the walls of Ja­son Ather­ton’s sec­ond­floor restau­rant, The Clock­tower, add to the sense of liv­ing his­tory. edi­tion­ho­tels.com
