This elevated park runs from 34th street to Gansevoort Street (below 14th street) and is absolutely amazing. This is my 2nd time exploring the High Line. My first time was a year ago when I went for an early morning run – as did several other people. The High Line is a public park built […]
I think it was in 2016 that the famous Danish chef, Claus Meyer, opened a huge food place at Grand Central Station called Great Northern Food Hall and a fine dining restaurant called Agern. I’ve seen the online documentary on the Danish TV channel DR1 where they showed how Claus Meyer built and started this […]
I absolutely LOVE this hotel. My husband and I’ve stayed here 3 times within the last year and twice just this month (Sept. 2017), so by now it feels very familiar. And I like the neighborhood a lot. It’s just as good these two times as the first time. During our 2nd visit, we stayed […]
The elevator takes us to the lobby and front desk on the 3rd floor of the building. As soon as we come out, it’s like stepping into a hip lounge with dimmed lights and nice background music. The lady at the front desk is friendly and she asks us if we’d like something to drink; […]
In New York City there’s a neighborhood called Curry Hill and if you want Indian food, this is the place to go. One night we went to Bhatti Indian Grill on 100 Lexington Ave (27th St.). According to a Google search, this restaurant serves authentic North Indian cuisine including kebabs & regional specialties.
If you’re not a fan of dusty museums and someone wants to drag you to one, you should really insist on going to the American Museum of Natural History! I’d dare say that anyone will find it interesting to visit. My husband is practically allergic to museums and he even thought it was an interesting […]
Of the few musicals that I’ve ever seen in my life, Wicked is the best Broadway musical I’ve ever seen! This is the untold story of the witches of Oz and of what happened long before Dorothy clicked the heels of her red shoes and said “there’s no place like home”.
Chinatown is another neighborhood in New York City that you just have to visit. When you finally hit this part of Manhattan, everything suddenly changes and it’s like you’re literally stepping into China.
Take a subway ride to Lower Manhattan. Riding the subway is easy, fast and cheaper than taking a taxi. As a tourist in NYC, Lower Manhattan is one of the places you must visit – and won’t regret.
When you’re a tourist and to you go to New York City, you of course must go to Times Square. It’s a really curious place. The very definition of the phrase bright lights – big city.
I’ve been wanting to see The Lion King for the last couple of years and now the time had finally come! I love Broadway musicals and after hearing lots of amazing reviews and comments about The Lion King, my expectations were through the roof.
A night out on a rooftop bar is just one of those things you have to try at least once. In Miami there are several rooftop bars, and it might be hard to decide where to go. My friends and I went to Area 31, a rooftop bar at the Epic Hotel in Downtown Miami.
If you don’t speak Spanish, getting around Little Havana will probably be quite challenging as practically nobody speaks any English. Fortunately, I do speak Spanish but I would still say that Cuban-Spanish is tough to understand.
Right across from South Beach (SoBe) is, of course, the famous Ocean Drive. The place is just as lively and happening as the beach and filled with restaurants, hotels, bars and PEOPLE.
If you like food markets and specialty shops, you might just love a visit to Chelsea Market. This is an indoor market, open 7 days a week from 7/8 AM until 8/9 PM.
Macy’s flagship store, located on 151 W 34th St., has been around since 1902 and is the second largest store in the world with 2.2 million square feet. It’s certainly worth a visit!
In October 2016 I took a trip to New York City with my family and stayed at the brand new Innside New York NoMad by Melia on 132 W 27th St – between 6th and 7th Ave.
Renting a boat and seeing Miami from the Oceanside is definitely something that I’d recommend. You get a really nice view of the skyline and the islands with the gorgeous mega mansions. There are plenty of sandbanks around where you can anchor up your boat and spend some time in the water.
When in Wynwood, do stop by Dr Smood, which is a health café owned and created by Rene & Patrizia Sindlev. He’s from Denmark (founder of Pandora jewelry), she’s from Italy and together they’ve created this incredible new and revolutionary concept of smart food for a good mood.
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens was originally a winter home built and owned by James Deering (1825-1925). His family owned the Deering Harvester Company and was one of the richest families in the United States by the end of the 19th Century.
