Covering more than 70 percent of our planet, oceans are among the earth’s most valuable natural resources. They govern the weather, clean the air, help feed the world, and provide a living for millions.
Each of our hotels is home to thousands of plants, and – lucky us – expert teams that keep those living beauties alive and thriving year round. We caught up with the team at Harrison Green (the geniuses behind the plants and living green wall at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge) and asked them a few questions about how New Yorker’s can bring the outdoors in, and keep their own homes filled with greenery. Think of it as a little plant FAQ!
The beginning of fall, as with every change of season, is the perfect time to focus on the needs of the mind and body.

When Uhuru Design founders Jason Horvath and Bill Hilgendorf first started making furniture in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, in 2004, they were literally pulling discarded construction beams off the street. Call it reclaiming or scavenging, but Horvath and Hilgendorf laugh when they recall that they were essentially taking wood out of the trash.
