Casey Neistat and Candice Poole at The Top of The Standard’s Five Years at the Top Celebration
Watch our exclusive video by Casey Neistat here!
It’s the first day of August and us New Yorkers are secretly savoring our short 3 months of Summer before the snowy days begin. We did however remember July very fondly, so here’s our top 5 favorite posts as we enter our last month of Summer.
This year, 4th of July was a doozie with parties at all of our hotels in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. Here is a view from our Hollywood hotel with good ‘ol trusty Abe Lincoln serving up patriotic shots to our pool guests. Notice the awesome flag color coordination organized on the tray!
One of Standard Hotels collaborators (and guest bloggers) Cheryl Dunn was featured on a radio show at KCRW in Los Angeles. If you didn’t read it the first time, give it a listen now and enjoy Cheryl’s song picks and cool accompanying stories.
40 free songs? Every month, The Standard compiles 4 playlists of 10 songs each to represent each one of our properties. July’s freebie batch of MP3’s are not to be missed.
Ok. We had to single out the infamous day that Ghostface showed up at The Standard New York for a magazine shoot… with a falcon, no less.
Another one of The Standard’s collaborators, Casey Neistat, created a little video about riding in the bike lanes in New York. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and take a peek. And don’t tell us we didn’t warn ya, when you ride our bikes.
And now back to our regular programming. Welcome August!
The Standard Shop has a new toy for your bike. Truthfully, it’s more than a toy, it’s actually a life-saver with a strong LED light that can alert anything around you. For daring riders, such as Standard collaborator, Casey Neistat, who challenges New York bike lanes, we strongly recommend snapping one of these on his bike too.
The Bookman Light is slick and sweet, and (of course), it’s made in Sweden. It’s a slim, detachable bike light. As well as being pocket-sized, it’s surprisingly luminous and works perfectly as your main front and tail light when riding in the dark in all weather conditions. Thanks to the protruding LEDs, you can easily bespotted from all directions.
The lights are simple to mount and detach due to the elastic cord. To make the light small, everything was removed that didn’t fulfill a function. There is one big rubber button that is easy to locate and one carefully balanced elastic cord. We love Swedish utilitarian design.
The lights will be adorned on the new Standard New York bikes of Danish design. The bikes (not for sale) will be parked in front of our hotel for guest usage. We thought the lights were so adorable so we went ahead and ordered an extra batch of lights to sell in our online shop.
Package contents include 1 front light (white LED) and 1 tail light (red LED). The 3 modes are slow flashing, fast flashing and steady light. Batteries are included with 2 x CR2032 in each light body. When that runs out, it’s easy to change the batteries by loosening the screws on the bottom.
Drive safe and stay in those bike lanes….OK, Casey?
One of our good friends, Casey Neistat, got a ticket from the NYPD for not riding his bike in the bike lane. The problem is that the bike lane sometimes isn’t always the safest place to ride your bike as he has so clearly (and hilariously) depicted in this short film he made.
Sometimes, you have to question NY’s finest. It’s our civic duty!
Casey Neistat is a runner. He’s also a filmmaker. But he’s not the type that went to film school. He’s more the type of guy that just bought a camera and iMac and figured it out. This little piece is a creative short film that Casey created over a few weeks as he trained for the New York Marathon. Casey slapped his alarm clock every morning, booted up his Nike sneakers, and pounded the pavement with a video camera while facing the demons that aimed to distract his mission. After 3 weeks of documenting, and scoring with his friend Jordan Galland, Mind Games was birthed.
