The Perfect Day
Stay downtown for access to the city’s best restaurants and shopping. The Lower East Side (or L.E.S. to the locals) has plenty of boutique hotels, but maybe none as chic as The Public.
Indulge your sweet tooth for breakfast at the ultra-Instagrammable Supermoon Bakehouse before continuing onto cool girl-loved stores like Frankie Shop and Reformation.
Head to Brooklyn for a night out by starting in chic Williamsburg. The rooftop bar at the William Vale Hotel offers panoramic views of the city alongside delicious cocktails. If you can snag a reservation, dinner at Lillia is as good for people watching as it is for delicious Italian food made to share.
Flatiron is the perfect spot to start your family trip. Access to the nearby Harry Potter and Lego stores will entertain the kids while shopping on Lower Fifth Avenue offers up designers like Michael Kors and Tory Burch alongside curated boutiques like Bandier and Intermix.
Stop at the original Shake Shack location for burgers and fries outside in Madison Square Park, and make sure to check out the rotating art exhibits scattered throughout the park.
Little Island is a new addition to the city, an almost-three acre park floating on the waters of the Hudson River. In addition to cool playground spaces, there are art workshops, dance performances, and more geared towards younger travelers.
It’s quiet(er) uptown in NYC, so try the Upper East Side for a romantic getaway. The Carlyle Hotel is cool enough that they’ve just done a collaboration with FRAME denim, and their legendary Bemelmans Bar is the ultimate for a romantic drink with live music.
Spend your afternoon taking in the best art museums in America, starting at the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Frick Collection and the Guggenheim are all within walking distance.
Dinner and a show is a classic way to spend an evening out in NYC. Broadway is back and you can take your pick of serious plays or fun musicals to see. Skip dinner in Times Square and head to Columbus Circle on your way down for an exquisite fine dining experience at Marea.
