Never before have I been given the opportunity to run free with my creative inspirations as I have in the time I have spent working on The Heart Chamber. Apart from feeling like I’ve been adopted into a family by the loving freak jobs who run the place, the hotel is such a nurturing character in itself it’s impossible not to be inspired to contribute something grand to the place.
Carlton Arms Hotel is the root of evolving honest artistic expression where random people can live within. It not only inspires creative types, it greatly effects the whole visiting experience of NYC in the sense that you are living inside a strange new world right in the heart of the city. – James Zirco Fisher
