For the past 14 years, Piers 94 & 92 on the Hudson River have played host to New York’s contemporary art fair, the Armory Show. In 2012, this cultural showcase will run March 8-11, with a greater focus on the galleries, allowing them a larger footprint at the fair.
From museum professionals and avid collectors to the novice admirer, art enthusiasts will enjoy this year’s Commissioned Artist, Theaster Gates. Known for his sculptures, performances and urban installations, Gates is sure to excite audiences with his socially relevant work.
Equally intriguing is this year's Armory Focus: the Nordic Countries, which will allow a select group of galleries from Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway & Sweden to showcase some of the region's most innovative creative talent. While some may complain about the crowds, there is no doubt that the event is a wonderful place to absorb some top-notch contemporary art.
If accommodation is required, consider Chelsea’s hottest new hotel, The Dream Downtown. Conveniently located on Manhattan's west side, it makes it easy for guests to participate in all of the fair’s festivities. Owned by Vikram Chatwel, the Dream Downtown boasts 316 luxuriously modern rooms, all equipped with complimentary high-speed internet access.
From the Dream’s rooftop lounge, PH-D, guests can take in the stunning views of the New York City skyline. Or relax poolside along the Dream Downtown’s 50ft. outdoor heated pool, complete with 5,000 sq ft pool deck, beach club and private cabanas. An imaginative, full-service luxury hotel, it's the perfect match for one of New York City's most exciting annual art shows.

Now I’m feelin' so fly like a G6, like a G6, like a G6.
You might recognize these lyrics from the Billboard Top 100 song, “Like a G6”. The electro-house single by Far East Movement has been number 1 on iTunes and currently has more than 9 million views on YouTube.
So why is it that you’re “feelin' so fly like a G6”? And what is a G6? One member from Far East Movement, Kev Nish, told MTV News,
A G6 is not a Gatorade flavor. It’s not a car, convertible, four-door. It’s not a watch. But Drake, Drake talks about having G4 pilots on deck, so we said, ‘What’s flyer than a G4?’ Of course, it would be a G6.
But we still want to know what a G6 really is. The G6 refers to the Gulfstream G650, a twin-engine business jet by Gulfstream Aerospace that's currently in flight testing. The aircraft will become Gulfstream’s largest, fastest, and most expensive business jet to enter the market. The G650 is considered to be the ultimate gold standard in business aviation. The cost will start at $58.5 million! Feelin' like a G6 yet? Check out some of the cabin dimensions below and a link to the hit song.
