In the midst of New York City’s southern borough, Laura Brown visits the latest game-changer in the world of urban hotels.

While the concrete jungle of New York City inspires many, others find solace in the calmer boroughs. In the lesser-known LES (Lower East Side), located to the east of Little Italy and tucked away in a concrete build, PUBLIC hotel dares to be different. The space offers a renewed type of luxury – one that is at once elegant and simplistic while comprising all your modern-day needs. PUBLIC’s fundamental statement is that it offers luxury for all.
