GrandLifeNYC (grandhotelsnyc.com) is the creative lifestyle arm of the Soho Grand and Tribeca Grand Hotels, downtown Manhattan’s original hotel pioneers; the first to introduce the luxury boutique hotel experience to downtown Manhattan. GrandLifeNYC.com removes the walls and physical boundaries of the Hotels to offer visitors a chance to experience the unique and exclusive lifestyle brand without limitations of traveling to the properties. It is a selectively curated cultural site featuring detailed content encompassing art, design, fashion, film, music, and dining and nightlife. Its legitimacy is based on the strong brand equity of the hotels as hubs of cultural activity and influence, as well as the reputations of GrandLife contributors – entities delved from New York’s most influential and respected creative sources. These individuals include Brian Niemietz, a contributor to New York Magazine and New York Post; Elliott Aronow, a writer for Spin, Urb and Index; Susan Kirschbaum, formerly of the New York Times and Harpers Bazaar; and Yasha Wallin, an independent art curator. The site reflects the multi-faceted on-goings of downtown New York City culture as seen through the eyes of those who call it their home.
