Saatchi Views

Monday, June 18th, 2012

One of the best things about working at Saatchi NY is that our offices have such a fun character (and spectacular NYC views). Last week the H/H team sat down with our new interns to get their thoughts on the blog. One of the comments that came out of our little brainstorm was that they didn’t see enough of our office when going through old posts, so we’ve decided to fix that in one sweeping gesture.  Newly arrived intern Cylla Senii covered the space, camera in hand, picking up some great shots of the real estate and views of Hudson/Houston. Enjoy!
