I was totally inspired to shoot for myself this week at the hotel I’m staying at: The Jane. Its a beautiful turn of the century hotel that is a sweet spot here on the water in the Meatpacking/West Village area of lower Manhattan. Everything about it was screaming “shoot me”! Modeled after the Titanic, where survivors were housed once rescued and brought back here, so the story goes, this hotel feels as if it was as is 100 years ago. Founded in 2008 it is adjoined by a sweet little french cafe in the lower lobby. The food is fabulous there.
I found this little oasis in NYC, as I was thumbing through the United Airlines magazine, hotel reviews of NYC, literally on the way to La Guardia from Washington Dullas. I’m loving shooting this kind of stuff again. The hotel has rooms that start out at $75, and rooms for 2 that start at $175.
You can see views of the water from the hotel as well!
