Our Guide To Stay In New York

Saturday in New York

In New York City, we highly suggest staying downtown. We love SoHo – it’s close to nearly every subway line, and it isn’t nearly as crowded as midtown. We prefer the Crosby Street Hotel. This British owned hotel is luxurious and comfortable – the hotel offers spacious rooms, a patio and sculpture garden, a bar and restaurant, a screening room, and daily afternoon tea.

Food

After visiting your favorites along the Upper East Side’s Museum Mile, stop at Lexington Candy Shop for a bite to eat. The old-fashioned soda shop has been continuously open since 1925 and serves traditional luncheonette style food, including tuna melts, burgers, malted shakes, and egg creams. If you’re in the mood for something more upscale, you won’t be far from the acclaimed Michelin starred restaurant Daniel. If you’re willing to walk a few blocks East, other local favorites include Sfoglia (classic Italian cuisine), Drunken Munkey (excellent Indian with creative cocktails and a wonderful ambiance), and Heidelberg (traditional German food in a lively atmosphere). If you prefer to dine downtown, we’d choose Locanda Verde for upscale Italian or Kiki’s for authentic Greek food in a casual environment.

Art

Begin the day by exploring the area around the hotel– there are plenty of galleries in SoHo, TriBeCa and the neighboring areas. Use the Downtown Gallery Map to guide you. Our favorite is Anita Rogers Gallery, a female owned and run gallery, featuring a mix of contemporary primary and secondary market artists, both figurative and abstract. Be sure to visit the nearby Earth Room – the 1977 art installation by Walter De Maria is free and open to the public Wednesday-Sunday 12-6pm. Chat to the friendly manager and caretaker there, William Dilworth – he’s worked there over thirty years and is happy to share his insights and thoughts with visitors of all ages.

Afterwards, pop into La Mercerie Café for a snack, coffee, or glass of wine– the hybrid space is both a picturesque café and an upscale furniture and home goods store, specializing in handmade objects. Afterwards, you can easily take the subway or a car straight uptown to visit classic NYC museums. While we love the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and the Cooper Hewitt, we recommend making time to walk up a little further and visit El Museo del Barrio, which specializes in Latin American and Caribbean art.

After Dinner Fun

After dinner, head back downtown for some late-night jazz and drinks. Our all-time favorite is Blue Note Jazz but newcomer The Django at the Roxy Hotel is also a great choice.
