253 Grand St, Brooklyn, NY 11211, USA
I just had dinner at Walters Food last night and although the check was a bit steep i have nothing but good memories of this place. Great service, fine food and AMAZING cocktails - Walters served as the perfect reminder as to why I love...
180 10th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
In a peaceful pocket of the vibrant Chelsea neighborhood, the High Line Hotel is a charming boutique with many stories to tell. There is the tale of the grounds once being home to a 17th-century apple orchard, or the history of the cloistered...
156 10th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA
This Chelsea favorite turns out reliably satisfying farm-to-table American fare all day long. If you have a big day of sightseeing ahead, stop by for a hearty breakfast (buttermilk pancakes, huevos rancheros, or a bowl of kale, spinach, falafel...
93 1st Avenue #2, New York, NY 10003, USA
Now that it's winter and NYC seems a little dimmer - a great meal, beautiful setting and warm environment without breaking the bank is a must. What better way to do that then with amazing Indian food? Panna II is a beautiful restaurant to check...
200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238, USA
When plans for the Brooklyn Museum's building on Eastern Parkway were conceived in 1890, the borough was still its own city; it wasn't until 1898 that the five boroughs would be united into the New York City we know today. Brooklyn's leading...
Ocean Crest Blvd, Queens, NY 11691, USA
Riis beach is a beautiful beach not too far from NYC that makes the summer in NYC complete. It's also a great option for a gay/ queer beach other then Fire Island. With a full gender, race and economical spectrum the feeling of community and...
Dumbo, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
Of the various abbreviations for different neighborhoods in New York, DUMBO wins the prize for cutest: It stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It is a little off the beaten path, though you may find yourself here if you have...
244 E Houston St, New York, NY 10002, USA
When traveling of course i like to see the cultural necessities like art museums and landmarks but as soon as the night falls I WANNA PARTY. So I recommend any one visiting NYC to check out this amazing party called ELEVENELEVEN (11:11) at Open...
79 N 11th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249, USA
A five-year restoration and renovation project transformed a factory on the Williamsburg waterfront, originally built in 1901, into the stylish but laid-back Wythe Hotel. This property has a distinct Brooklyn stamp, from the Brooklyn-made...
Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY, USA
There's nothing better then a case of beer or bottle of wine and a Brooklyn roof top. As a Brooklynite I do this often but the proximity of Greenpoint to the Manhattan skyline is definetly a sight to see if ever in Brooklyn and want to wine down a...
221 Knickerbocker Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237, USA
Everyone has heard of the world famous Roberta's and Tandem to name a couple (my local go to spots for great cuisine) but sometimes my side of Bushwick can seem like a void for the candlelight epicurean experience. At the same time, the fact that...
