A space inspired by L’Orangerie at Jardin des Tuileries in Paris is the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of Times Square. At the recently-opened Times Square EDITION, the product of an all-star collaboration between Yabu Pushelberg and Ian Schrager, you’ll find exactly that at The Terrace and Outdoor Gardens

Before reaching the garden-like feel of The Terrace, guests are treated to a glimpse of “the real New York City,” a photography exhibit curated by Schrager that showcases the vivacity of the city through the lenses of such renowned photographers as Helen Levitt, Elliott Erwitt, Bruce Davidson, Ruth Orkin, Arthur Leipzig and Cornell Capa to name a few.

The garden in the sky holds thousands of plants, trees, and ivy under the care of landscape architect Madison Cox. Yabu Pushelberg’s impeccable eye pairs rich velvets, luxurious leathers, and sultry woods to create a sensory reprieve from the chaos of the city streets below.

Michelin-starred chef John Fraser oversees the hotel’s food and beverage program, and was inspired by traditional French brasseries for the direction of The Terrace restaurant. The menu of the romantic and elegant eatery showcases Fraser’s adept skill at creating robust vegetarian cuisine, along with light pastas and steak fare.
