For those of you who regularly follow the blog, you know that myself and the rest of the PDs staff keep busy. Wilchuck regularly turns out amazing video collages. Mskurz moved on to become editor of Maine’s local newspaper The Independent. It’s in our spirit to create.
So, in the interest of adding to and diversifying my avenues for writing, I am now a contributor for Yotel NYC’s blog. To give you some insight:
(This background comes from Yotel’s website)
“Yotel was created by YO! Founder Simon Woodroffe OBE and YOTEL CEO Gerard Greene. The idea was conceived by Simon after he was upgraded into first class on a British Airways flight. He decided to translate the language and the luxury of airline travel and a touch of Japanese influence into a small but luxurious cabin. “
“In June 2011 Yotel opened its flagship city centre hotel just two blocks west of Times Square in New York. Cabins are 30% bigger than the airport product and come with floor to ceiling windows. There are four main cabin types, ‘Premium’ cabins with Queen size double beds, Corner cabins with dual aspect windows, FIRST cabins with King beds, some that come with private terraces and hot tubs and VIP 2 cabin suites.”
“The hotel was designed by Rockwell Group of New York in collaboration with Softroom of London and features 20,000 sqft of flexible and dynamic entertainment space including the largest hotel terrace in the city.”
I, under my full name (I have a name!), will be writing for the Music & Nightlife section. In the coming weeks, I plan to cover new and exciting events around NYC and in the world of music. Already I have written a post on fun things to do in NYC before the end of the summer.
I’m really excited for this opportunity and I plan to keep you all abreast as to what I write for Yotel’s blog!
