a brief guide to my favorite places in the greatest city on earth
heaven on earth...
Brooklyn Bridge Park
one of the best places to marvel at the most iconic skyline in the world
there's some kind of magic in the park. summer picnics, winter skating, and long walks with lovers make for a good visit
Frank Lloyd Wright's unmistakeable design house evolving collections of modern, impressionionist, & contemporary art
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
makes for a idyllic spring day, especially when the cherry blossoms are putting on a show
shopping, people watching, cobblestone hopping. one of the city's trendiest neighborhoods, brimming with scenesters
New York's newly reopened museum, feauturing predominately contemporary American art.
Grand Central Station
the celestial ceiling and grand open hall make this historical train station one of the most unforgettable spaces in the city
The Morgan Library
museum & research library of Pierpont Morgan; home to ancient antifacts and some of the world's rarest books
the glam icon of department stores; go on a weekday morning for a little more breathing room
a hipster's dream and locavore's heaven; come hungry and gorge to your heart's content at Smorgasburg
"the true New Yorker secretly believes that people living anywhere else have to be, in some sense, kidding"
a one-and-a-half mile urban park, built on an elevated, idle railroad spur.
so named because it's the "triangle below Canal Street", this Manhattan neighbourhood is all classic NY streetscapes and beautiful bistros
America's largest art museum containing over two million works. give yourself plenty of time!
American Museum of Natural History
worth it for the dinosaurs alone in my opinon
located in the Rose Center for Earth and Space in the AMNH. leaves you in wonderment at the scale of the known universe
"I'll have what she's having."
South Williamsburg, Italian
we kicked off 2018 in this warm and chic new Italian spot. the pasta was good enough to curb our Milan cravings.
Momofuku Noodle Bar
East Village, Ramen
David Chang's contemporary Asian magic in a bowl; always packed, great for solo diners
Upper East Side, Contemporary French
this classic has retained it's 3 NY Times stars for 21 years; long, lazy, romantic dinners are well-suited
instagram-ready brunch spot for your easily impressed out-of-towners
Cobble Hill, Thai
best Thai in Brooklyn in my humble opinion; loud, busy, great for date night with your steady
hip, modern Italian spot with cool-kid staff; great for a date night with your not-so-steady
East Village, Ukranian
in case you need a solid plate of pierogis at 4am
Williamsburg, American Diner
in case you need a solid plate of disco fries at 4am
Greenpoint, Contemporary American
formerly River Styx, Homer Murray & his dad Bill have created a haven for New Yorkers on their night out
my favorite bar gave birthday to a hidden, bohemian gem that makes for the perfect brunch
because this city legit never sleeps.
