Nyack Embraces The Building's Industrial And Musical Past

Last night, The Time Nyack opened its doors to a who’s who of the music and arts scene, to celebrate the grand opening of The Time Nyack. Housed in a former factory, The Time Nyack is the first hotel of its kind in the Hudson Valley and will serve as an escape from reality for guests. The new luxury lifestyle hotel blends the unique history of the space and the personality and pulse of Nyack with the quality, attentive service and contemporary amenities that has come to be expected from both WYINC. developments and Time Hotels™. To create the ultimate hospitality experience, The Time Nyack houses a 150-seat BV’s Grill, an offshoot of the famed Bobby Van’s Steakhouses.

The Time Nyack sits about a mile from the edge of the Hudson River at 400 High Avenue in Nyack, New York and was at one time a plastics and metal manufacturer. The Time Nyack’s industrial roots are apparent throughout - large loft windows, ceilings that reach 12-to-20 feet high, exposed ducts, bare brick walls, modern furniture, graphic and textured wallcoverings, integrated lighting, wood flooring and walnut paneling. The Time Nyack’s 133 rooms and suites are simple yet elegant, gritty yet graceful, and infused with loft-style aesthetic. 

“We took a forgotten factory warehouse and transformed it into a cutting-edge luxury destination for Nyack and all who pass through,” stated Michael Yanko, principal and co-founder of WYINC.

“WYINC has always specialized in developing upscale, boutique projects in urban destinations. There was a need in this upscale, sophisticated community for hospitality accommodations in keeping with the standards of longtime residents. We thank all who helped to bring this vision to fruition and we are thrilled to officially open our doors.” 

The Time Nyack was developed by WYINC., the boutique development house behind the Pod 39 hotel and The Whitman, in NYC, and is managed by Dream Hotel Group, the hotel brand and management company behind the the Dream Hotels, Time Hotels, The Chatwal and Unscripted Hotels brands. Glen Coben, founder and owner of the renowned architectural and interior design firm Glen & Co., collaborated with Architect of Record, Environetics, in designing both the public spaces and guestroom suites in a way that represents the eclectic spirit of Nyack, while reflecting the overall vision of WYINC. and the Dream Hotel Group. 

Nestled on a slope overlooking New York’s Hudson River, Nyack is home to many artists, bohemians and New York City transplants. The formerly empty warehouse that is now The Time Nyack is steeped in history; it was once home to spontaneous performances by local bands. A local radio station would often stream the live music from the warehouse on-air. Now, the gorgeous outdoor space with bar and pool deck will play host to Live Nation performances, a nod to the building’s past musical influence. 

All of the art in The Time Nyack is curated by the HG Contemporary, founded by Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim and specializing in bold, process-oriented work by emerging and established artists. The artists featured specifically at The Time Nyack include Alexander Yulish, Raphael Mazzucco, Nelson Saiers, Russell Young, Maximilian Wiedemann, and Pixelpancho.

Amenities include a vibrant lounge, rooftop bar, speakeasy, business center, outdoor seating with bar and pool deck, fitness center, bike program, free shuttle services, Tesla charging station, and more than 4,000 square feet of event space.
