Gansevoort Meatpacking Unveils Prime Upgrades With Google Home And The Mirror

The Meatpacking district’s most iconic hotel, Gansevoort Meatpacking, reveals a massive upgrade and collaboration with fellow neighbor, Google. In 2004, Manhattan’s chicest micro-neighborhood welcomed the first luxury hotel boasting both city skyline and Hudson River views.

“Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are at it again! On this season of “Brother vs. Brother,” they’re competing to see who can renovate the better home in Los Angeles. And in the latest episode, they’re facing off over (arguably) the most important part of the house: the kitchen.

In the episode “A Tale of Two Kitchens,” a lot is on the line. Drew hasn’t won a single kitchen challenge in all six seasons of “Brother vs. Brother,” so he’s determined to get lucky with No. 7.
