The Area: At 77 Walker markign the nexus of three iconic New York neighbourhoods: Tribeca, Soho, and Chinatown.
The DNA: A former button and ribbon factory in New York‘s Tribeca neighbourhood has been turned into the boutique-style Walker Hotel Tribeca featuring an eclectic mix of modern furniture and industrial details.
