The fireplace where Jay-Z sat at Top of The Standard NYC. Best seat in the house.
A while back, I was in NYC on business and stopped by The Standard Hotel’s restaurant/lounge, “Top of the Standard” for a little pleasure. Little did I know that the NYC hot spot, formerly known as The Boom Boom Room, would become the center of one of the biggest pop culture scandals–Cartergate. I sat by the same fireplace as Mr. Carter and rode the same elevators where he caught a beat down from his sister-in-law. It occurred to me, that you might be interested to see the beautiful place where something so ugly went down.
