New York: Thompson LES

Make a note to self in preparation of next year’s Go Skateboarding Day: stay at the Thompson Lower East Side. Standing tall on Allen Street between Houston and Stanton, the boutique hotel is conveniently located on a bike path right next to Epstein’s, Whole Foods, Max Fish and Katz.

Admire the filmstrip of Andy Warhol by Gerard Malanga photolithographed onto the pool floor (no doubt my favorite feature in the hotel).

Legends were here:

L’Agent Goodies…
