Samsung 837

Located at 837 Washington in New York's Meatpacking District, Samsung's 837 is part interactive product showroom, part Samsung help center. You can't buy any Samsung products here, but you can get your cracked phone screen replaced. It's also a cultural venue and party space that reflects the trendy neighborhood.

The upper floors of the building house Samsung's North American marketing team.
