The story of Ink48 is Make Your Mark.

According to a Chinese proverb, "The palest ink is better than the sharpest memory." More than simple pigment, ink makes a statement an indelible impression.

We all have an opportunity to make a mark in the world, but how? In 1941, center fielder Joe DiMaggio made his mark with a 56-game hitting streak for the New York Yankees. Johannes Gutenberg left an unmistakable mark in the 15th century by inventing the printing press. Diane Von Fürstenberg will be forever known for her iconic wrap dress. Whether it's being the best at what you do or possessing inimitable style, Ink48 recognizes that its guests are multi-faceted, interesting, and complex; possessing many moods, desires, and varieties of expression.

A former printing house located where 11th Avenue meets 48th Street, Ink48's occupants have a long history of making a lasting imprint. A one-of-a-kind urban retreat with an inviting rooftop lounge, open-air gardens, and panoramic views of Time Square and the Hudson River, Ink48 offers special amenities and services to illustrate the unique signature of each guest. You'll be invited and encouraged to make your mark in life while Ink48 provides the indelible inspiration.
