Floor of Pennies

Floor of Pennies, originally uploaded by shannonpatrick17.

A floor literally tiled with thousands of copper pennies… it’s pretty surprising to look down and see them when you walk into The Standard Grill in the Standard Hotel New York, below the Highline. The design was selected by the restaurant’s designers,
