The Paparazzi Project

An extraordinary stay designed for a star!

Ron Galella was the original paparazzi and New York was his most infamous girlfriend. He reigned during a time when celebrity was nothing but chic and city nights were brimming with candid moments. Galella stands alone in capturing some of the most iconic shots and stars of our time…Mick, Lennon, and Jackie, his forever muse.

The “Paparazzi Project” whisks guests away to a New York that can only be seen through Galella’s lens. Sitting atop the twenty third floor, the penthouse suite is adorned with some of Galella’s most beloved and unpublished shots — and is paired with a design fitting of a photo shoot. Complete with hardwood floors, mirrored walls reflecting the Hudson River and lighting that any photographer would approve, the suite’s decor truly sets the stage for glam with a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll. Of course, like any good shoot, it starts with a splash…of bubbles. Guests will enjoy complimentary champagne while getting primped and primed by hairstylist and makeup artist to the stars, Lionel Renard. Once camera ready for the world to see, a Getty photographer waits to capture your every move. Perhaps you start with the electric views of Times Square as your backdrop, toast the evening with a cocktail in District M before heading to the theater, or like any good celeb, dash behind the curtains while your personal paparazzo gets his last shot. Forgot who you met last night? Not to worry, Getty Photography will have your images ready for all (or maybe just you) to view the next day!
