Co-founded by New York-natives Joe Torres and Simon Whitley, The Box House Group operates and owns The Box House Hotel, the Henry Norman Hotel and the Franklin Guesthouse in the vibrant Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. The Groups' co-founders, who transitioned from a background in construction to hospitality, transformed each property from an old warehouse or factory into loft-style boutique hotel accommodations, which reflect the vibrancy of the Greenpoint neighborhood currently undergoing a renaissance.
Greenpoint is the northernmost neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Originally a farmland, the residential core of Greenpoint was built on parcels divided during the 19th Century, with rope factories and lumber yards lining the East River to the west, while the northeastern section along the Newtown Creek through East Williamsburg became an industrial maritime reach.
Today, Greenpoint is blossoming to become one of Brooklyn's most thriving neighborhoods, with a creative culinary scene, a vibrant nightlife, and a developing residential area surrounded by a host of large parks and industrial architecture.
