The Designer Showhouse of New York

What do you get when you take 22 design firms and set them loose on the 55th and 56th floors of the luxury Residences at W New York – Downtown? A showhouse to end all showhouses, full of brilliant decor, amazing ideas, and breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. NYC&G was proud to sponsor the project, which raised funds for the new Lenox Hill HealthPlex in Greenwich Village and set the bar even higher for great design in New York.
