Secret Shopper

July 13, 2015

You never know what you're going to stumble across in New York, what might be hiding under a rock…or in a photo booth. This particular photo booth is in Community 54, located less than fifteen minutes from our Lexington Avenue hotel. At first, it looks like a small, vintage arcade, with classic games like Asteroids, Pacman and even a claw machine. But when visitors enter the photo booth (which is also fully functional), on the other side is a boutique clothing store, with vintage shirts and jackets and stylish shoes. If that weren't enough, beyond the store is an outdoor event space that's been decorated by international graffiti artists. So if you're up for alternating trying on clothes with rounds of claw games, or just want to feel like a bit of super spy, head to Community 54 and slide into the photo booth – no secret password required.

Address: 54 Clinton Street, New York
