This yellow sculpture by Cheryl Farber Smith entitled, 'Mellow Yellow' caught my eye immediately when I was walking through TriBeCa Park on a warm indian summer day in September. For some reason on that day, it really got me thinking about how...

My vote for the best bowl of Asian noodles in New York City goes to Xi'an Famous Foods, which also won over Anthony Bourdain, food critics, and countless locals. The family-run business celebrates signature spicy dishes from its hometown in...

When I was introduced to soup dumplings by a NYC friend in Chinatown, I was immediately intrigued. They're a strange experience the first time, the sort of food that has to be played with a little before it can be eaten. Even while I was eating, a...

Prosecco on tap is not terribly easy to find in the Big Apple, but there’s one new hotel in town that is doing everything exceptionally well including providing bubbly on tap. The Conrad New York's Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar sounds like something out...

The line extending from the entrance to Crif Dogs and spilling onto St. Marks Place on Saturday nights can be a bit misleading. Sure, their bacon-wrapped, chili and coleslaw drenched, "spicy redneck" hot dog is horribly delicious (and the arcade...

The McQueen exhibit at The Met is a must see. Greek dinner in Queens, watching engagement shots all over the park in Brooklyn, new architecture, and general people watching.

Early this spring, I had an hour to kill in Manhattan, so I ducked into the Grolier Club, America's oldest bibliophilic society, where I saw a fascinating exhibit devoted to Wunderkammer, the cabinets of curiosities that originated in 16th-century...

“The store makes you want to read. But even more interesting, it makes customers want to write, as it has an in-house machine that prints and binds your own paperbacks, and if you pay extra, your book will be displayed on a shelf there.” —Fred...

There's only one place that I made sure to visit every single time I came to New York City before I was a resident. It didn't matter how long or short my stay was, my pilgrimage to 19th Street, up a flight of steep stairs and into the hallowed...

The new NoMad Hotel in New York is my new favorite place in the city. Designed by Jaques Garcia (of the Hotel Costes in Paris) it really feels like somewhere other than New York. Like Paris. Amazingly nice and genuine people. Incredible new...

I love the details and whimsy of the Ace hotels. They don't sacrifice convenience for style, they've got both in equal measure. I've also stayed at the Portland Ace, and it's just as dreamy.

Talk about "slow food!" Everything we picked out for our picnic-style dinner was aged...aged cheeses, aged meats, a bottle of 2008 red. I love knowing that months and years ago, someone in Italy was thoughtfully creating my dinner that I'd eat way...
