Well, while everybody has been buzzing about the peepshows in the new NYC Standard Hotel´s windows overlooking High Line, the curious minds at the NY Post did some investigative reporting to get to the bottom of the scandal…  Turns out that the staff of the hotel are the masterminds behind this viral marketing sensation…

“We don’t discourage [the nudity]. In actual fact, we encourage it,’ a friendly bellhop told a pair of reporters as they checked in yesterday at The Standard, where randy guests cavort with abandon to the dismay — or delight — of parkgoers below. After the hotel opened late last year, the bellhop said, naked and semidressed staff members were encouraged to pose in front of the windows. The point, he said, was to create a buzz with the unexpected peep show. ‘One of the managers even got naked in a room, and filmed it — they were considering a live feed for the Web site,’ the staffer said. ‘She’s an exhibitionist, too.” (NY Post)
