Now Boarding: StndAIR


Long weekends usually mean long drives, thanks to the inevitable crowds heading to their weekend getaway destinations. Not if André Balazs has anything to do with it—the Standard hotelier has brought back his eight-passenger seaplane, StndAIR, for its second year in a row just in time for Memorial Day weekend. In keeping with The Standard cool factor, every passenger will get their choice of one of three styles of Warby Parker sunglasses (and in Parker fashion, a pair of prescription glasses is distributed to one of the billion people worldwide without access to affordable eyewear) upon boarding the weekend flight, which departs from the East River. Forty-five minutes later, and perhaps a few glasses of André Balazs Reserve Beach Rosé down, you are in East Hampton. And if you want an anything-but-standard experience, you can now book StndAIR for charter services to any port within 300 miles of Manhattan.

A one-way flight on StndAIR is $525. To find out more, visit

    My personal thoughts on Windows 8 are quite negative and I am not a fan of the direction Microsoft is taking. The Release Preview feels as if Microsoft has ignored most of the negative feedback and keeps pushing for their vision. The improved desktop elements such as explorer & task manager are a great improvement however for a home or work desktop, the metro start-screen IMO is not suitable. My reason for this is the lack of customizatiion it has. Users such as me have become familiar with the startt menu and have watched it evolve for years. Tablets should use metro, desktops should use the typical start menu.
