IN THE SHAD­OWS

Sunday Times - - Travel -

As New York land­marks go, the Brook­lyn Bridge is right up there with the best of them. Apart from any­thing else, it’s a land­mark you can ac­tu­ally ad­mire up close — and use — for free. Less cheap is the sexy new 1 Ho­tel Brook­lyn Bridge, 194 rooms set in 10 storeys of re­claimed wood, hemp-blend mat­tresses, low-en­ergy light­bulbs and 100% organic-cot­ton sheets. There are ma­hogany trees in­side and lots of glass to let in the views of Man­hat­tan and the glo­ri­ous bridge it­self. From R3 621.
