Spend the night in a work of art for cheap, hell spend a week. The Carlton Arms is a 100-year-old hotel that is decorated to the nines. In the 80’s a group of artists got together to brighten up a run down spot where prostitutes, drug artists, criminals and the homeless inhabited. Each one of the 54 rooms, all the bathrooms and 4 hallways of this 5-story monument is colorful and an experience located in Manhattan. Be sure to read the history on this site, it’s really a great story.
