SmartFlyer’s New York City “It” List
We know how overwhelming it can be planning a trip to New York City. With so many shops, restaurants and activities to choose from how can you be sure that you’re putting together the perfect itinerary? We’ve compiled a list of the top spots in the city to help make your life a little bit easier. Whether you’re traveling to New York in the near future or you know someone who might be, here are some hidden gems that we love to frequent:
1. Start your day by stopping for a simple cup of Joe or a fancy latte at The Shop at the ultra chic Andaz Fifth Avenue.
2. Join in the city’s weekend ritual of brunch. Make sure you swing by Café Gitane in SoHo for some of the best French/Moroccan fare around, although at this venue, it’s all about the people watching!
3. Stop at INA to browse the best collection of vintage swag in New York City. The store has five different locations throughout Manhattan.
4. Looking for the ultimate New York City souvenir? Peek inside the magical John Derian Company shop located on East Second Street.
5. If you’re looking for a one of a kind piece, head over to the Brooklyn Flea in Williamsburg. Shop while you enjoy the view of the water and the New York City skyline.
6. Craving sweets? Victory Garden in the West Village specializes in goat’s milk frozen yogurt, which is lower in fat and more easily digested than cow’s milk. Try many of the fun flavors including our favorite, the Salted Caramel!
7. In need of a drink? Refresh with a speakeasy cocktail at Gallow Green on the rooftop of the McKittrick Hotel, the famous home of Punchdrunk Productions’ Sleep No More.
8. For a low-key dinner, grab lobster rolls to go from The Lobster Place in Chelsea Market and sit down for an al fresco dinner on the High Line, a public park that has been built atop an old railway in New York.
9. Looking for something a bit fancy? Don’t miss the farm to table cuisine at Blue Hill in Greenwich Village. Or, for a touch of adventure, drive out to the Blue Hill at Stone Barns for the ultimate Farmer’s Feast, a quick 40 minutes drive outside of New York City – a truly unforgettable dining experience!
