Dreams do come true. New York City will experience a new way to experience air, water, and light by visiting the Dream Hotel's new world-class aquarium designed by Justin Muir's City Aquarium. Standing near a stoic copper sculpture of Catherine the Great (c. 1915), City Aquarium's new installation rises over twenty feet, and holds 7,000 gallons of water.

The Dream Aquarium is the largest of its kind in New York. It invites visitors and hotel guests to wonder how far the imagination can reach, how far it can dream. It invites the senses to feel the connection between luxury and fantasy. The Aquarium's high design concept represents a collaboration with hotelier Vikram Chatwal, fashion surrealist David LaChapelle, and spiritualist Deepak Chopra's collective vision so that the rising column of water, light, color, and marine life seduces the viewer to float through a Dream.

City Aquarium's Dream installation completes the hotel lobby's design elements of 1940s style seating, hard-carved lions, and vaulted glass ceilings. Angelfish inside the Dream Aquarium suggest the possibility of heaven on earth and then he surreal experience approaches the fourth dimension: water seems suspended in air.
