Standard Hotel in New York Will Ask Guests Not to Strip There’s something altogether unsavory about including the phrases “Meatpacking District” and “exhibitionism” in the same sentence, but that’s life in the big city. In other words, that’s how they do things in New York - the Big Apple, the land of movie stars, potholes and scores of debt consolidation and debt management customers. Certain people love to do their little turn on that giant catwalk.
The Standard Hotel in New York has drawn some controversy for the way some of their guests leave nothing to the imagination of pedestrians walking by. According to the New York Daily News, the windows are floor-to-ceiling and they face the newly opened High Line Park, where foot traffic is high. Certain guests put on shows for passers-by, clothing optional and curtains open wide.
And staff encouraged the behavior
The Daily News reports that staff members of The Standard that maintained the hotel’s Facebook page were using that forum to encourage guests to walk on the wild side. It is unclear as to whether any content has been removed from the page, but the page itself is still online. At least publicly, management at The Standard Hotel in New York has expressed outrage at such exhibitionism and the employees who may have encouraged it. “The hotel will make a concerted effort to remind guests of the transparency of the guest room windows,” management officials said in a statement.
