View gallery

WHAT TO WEAR:

  • I try not to, but I often end up wearing all black, greys, khaki & white!
  • Apart from summer, I always take a jacket like this one here with me as the weather can be inconsistent and so too can the air-conditioning!
  • Anything individual, fashion forward, original, vintage or unique
  • Minimal accessories, but sunglasses always like these here
  • Flat shoes like sneakers or boots so you can explore all day and transition into the night like these here
  • Denim, suede or leather anything like this dress here

WHAT TO DO:

  • Grab a coffee and stroll around the streets checking out local stores…
  • Appreciate the hundreds of street art murals!
  • Visit the MOMA store in Soho if you do not feel like going uptown…
  • Walk, jog, run or chill on the West Side Highway and take in the view
  • Brunch anywhere at the gazillions of spots downtown which are fun all day, everyday of the week

WHERE TO HANG:

  • Washington Square Park or any of the many picturesque parks…
  • The Blond at 11 Howard for cocktails and fun!
  • Katz’s Deli or Remedy Diner for a late night date and snack…
  • Grand Banks or City Winery for afternoon cocktails in the summer which combined with the view and the scene are amazing!
  • Rooftop pool bars like Mr Purple, Bar Hugo or Jimmy at the James

WHERE TO EAT:

  • Egg Shop or Jack’s Wife Freda for brunch all day, any day…
  • Lalo or Miss Lily’s for a unique, very ‘downtown’ dinner
  • Le Turtle or Rin Tin Tin for chicken dinner!
  • Balato’s or Babbo for classic, old school Italian and romance…
  • Perry Street brunch for a casual but chic foodie experience

WHERE TO STAY:

  • 11 Howard – you may not leave the building as the restaurant, bar and terrace rooms are fantastic!
  • The Bowery Hotel – arguably one of the best lounges in the city and the rooms and decor are lovely too
  • Crosby Street Hotel – modern and charming luxury, cosy bar and a great location for strolling around…
  • The Greenwich Hotel – for an amazing bar and spa experience
  • The Mercer – classic, stylish luxury in the heart of Soho
