Sheraton Turns Sheep Meadow Into Office
To celebrate its new Link@Sheraton "technology lounge" feature (presumably more spectacular than the business centers currently offered in many hotels), Sheraton is holding a "Global Out of the Office Day" in Central Park's Sheep Meadow today. About 600 employees of parent group Starwood Hotels & Resorts are allegedly hanging out in the Park and working via PDA, laptop, etc. They encourage you to join them and avail the newspapers, wi-fi, computer stations and "two 52-inch TVs with live cable" they have set up to destroy the peace and quiet for which Sheep Meadow was once known and further erase any distinction between work and life.
