103 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002, USA
These days, wandering the Lower East Side (the area between the Bowery and the East River, with Houston Street marking its northern border and Canal Street its southern one), it can feel impossible to recall that this neighborhood was once among...

FAO Schwarz, at 5th Avenue and 58th Street, is perhaps the dream shopping experience of every kid, and some adults too. Famous from its big-screen turn in Big, when Tom Hanks's character danced across the store's floor piano, FAO Schwarz's history...

230 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10001, USA
Rooftop bars are mushrooming in Manhattan and many of them are quite cool. 230 Fifth (located in 230 5th Av) is a must as it offers an outstanding unobstructed view of the Empire State as well as other icon buildings in the city. Opens 4PM to 4AM...

Sadly, St. Mark's Books closed in 2016.

While we had heard that New York was a city that never sleeps, we were still surprised and delighted to find the St. Mark’s Bookshop open on a very late Sunday night. The shop, lit fluorescently,...

New York, NY, USA
Manhattan's Chinatown can be one of the most intimidating places to visit in all of New York City. While Little Italy is far smaller, it too can be off-putting with its obnoxious waiters who shove menus in your face as you traverse the sidewalk....

Brooklyn, NY, USA
It's been a while since I took my first 'Made in Brooklyn' tour with Dom, the company's enthusiastic and friendly owner (pictured here, he's the smiling bald guy!). I've since lost the photographs I took in moves across the globe and I can no...

Chef Amanda Freitag formerly of The Harrison says: "Get on the vegetable bandwagon by experiencing one of the best, most talented chefs in New York. John Fraser will blow your mind with his vegetable-focused menu offered only on Monday nights. Do...

While I am not usually one to go for the see-and-be-seen kind of places, the Spice Market was definitely the highlight of my last trip to New York City. And it's the kind of place where Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez eat from time to time. Not...

161 Prince St #1, New York, NY 10012, USA
During my year living in Soho, I went to my fair share of coffee houses but it was Cafe Borgia on Prince Street that first caught my eye. Prince Street is notoriously crowded but luckily, the cafe lies just beyond the crowded boutiques. Walking...

9 Doyers St #1, New York, NY 10013, USA
Don't be fooled by Apothéke's gritty exterior. This is not your typical cocktail bar. Once you pass through the entrance doors, things start getting interesting. For one thing, the bartenders are wearing apothecary outfits and the menu consists of...

4 E 36th St, New York, NY 10016, USA
As soon as I stepped foot in Arabesque, I knew I was no longer in Manhattan. Well in reality I was but it really feels like you've time traveled to Morocco. The menu is inspired by North African, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines and the...

Time Warner Center Ten Columbus Circle, Third Floor, New York, NY 10019, United States
Thomas Keller's French Laundry in California has long been lauded as America's finest restaurant so it makes sense that he would turn his attention to New York City, America's most food-diverse city. I love stopping at Bouchon Bakery just to gaze...

334 Furman St, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
Like an outdoor summer rock festival for food, as many as 100 local food vendors congregate from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at East River State Park in the Williamsburg neighborhood on Saturdays and on Sundays at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Nosh on...

Momofuku Milk Bar is one of those places in NYC that's always being raved about. Its desserts are incredible, it's worth the wait in line, best place to get your sugar fix...... It's all true! Ok, maybe not the 'best' part because I still haven't...

This picture was taken outside the Studio Museum in Harlem, where admission is free on Sundays. It showcases artists of African descent and, when I visited, I saw a great exhibit by Kira Lynn Harris. With the use of chalk she reimagined The Block...

This neighborhood store has a great selection of colorful and fashionable clothes and accessories all curated by the owners. Originally from Mali and Guinea in West Africa, their international taste and experience in couture design is apparent...

New York's best kept secret is all about free jazz, great vibes, and one very generous woman. Housed in a simple apartment in an historic part of upper Manhattan, Miss Margorie Elliot's Sunday afternoon music session has been bringing strangers...
