New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge Reveals $45 Million Renovation

After more than a year, the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge announced the unveiling of its $45 million transformation, ending a three-phase renovation.

The third phase focused on renovating the 667 guestrooms to mimic the Brooklyn lifestyle, with urban-inspired color pallets, fabrics that emulate the culture and landmarks, and an art piece that zooms in on a piece of a mural that is located in the lobby.

LA's Cathedral of St. Vibiana is reborn as a high-end venue

Transforming downtown Los Angeles’ Cathedral of St. Vibiana, which was built in 1876, and the rectory, built in 1933, into a modern event space and performing arts venue has taken more than a decade. Now fully retrofitted, air-conditioned and modernized, with custom sound and digitally controlled lighting systems, the main hall at Vibiana and its adjacent courtyard has been the site of art openings, fashion shows, wine tastings, weddings, high-profile fundraisers and Emmy awards after-parties.

New Venue: The Broad

Downtown Los Angeles has another stunning new landmark, The Broad, a museum as contemporary and daring as the art within its distinctive honeycomb- like exterior.

The Broad is a $140 million showcase for philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad’s 2,000-piece contemporary art collection. Visitors can reserve or wait in line for free admission to the permanent collection, which includes art world luminaries such as Jasper Johns, Cindy Sherman, Ed Ruscha, Jean- Michel Basquiat and Robert Rauschenberg.

I am insatiably curious and always keen to learn something new, but I find that I am surprised by the seemingly familiar more often than not. Case in point? The Palm restaurant in Philadelphia.

It exudes that classic steakhouse appeal – a dark wood bar, a buzzy “business is getting done here” ambience and professional male waiters sporting jackets.

Philadelphia Visitor’s Center – Not Just for Tourists

It seems that I keep bumping up against things I don’t know. Whether it’s a fact I didn’t know or a place I wasn’t aware of before, it seems that at least several times a week I discover something new.It used to bother me and make me feel less "in the know," but now I put my ego aside and just enjoy the moment of basking in something new.
