New York is energetic. Especially in Summer when the temperatures fluctuate around 30 degrees. If you walk through Madison Square Park in the evening, it seems like the people from New York have moved from their homes to the park. You see friends catching up while eating a burger and people do Tai Chi exercises, let their dogs out or listen to some music. The same goes for other green spots in the city like Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you can visit Erwin Worm’s Hotdog Bus. And the new Domino Park in Williamsburg where you overlook the skyline of Manhattan from a lounge chair.
In Greenpoint, people drink wine or beer in front of a cool restaurant and while the sun slowly sets I take the East River Ferry back to Manhattan. We also stop at Long Island where I see couples over 50s dancing the tango and a large group of yogis performing sun salutations. All have a view of the skyscrapers on the other side of the river. When I’m back in my hotel, the city is still buzzing, especially on the roof terrace on the 18th floor of this new hotel. Where the cocktails are fresh, and the view of the Empire State Building is phenomenal.
New York is also happening concerning new hotspot openings. I mainly concentrated on neighborhoods such as the Lower East Side, Soho, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and the NoMad district this time. That is because the hotspot density is the highest. From a Mexican restaurant for vegans to a restaurant and shop set up by the hottest designers in New York: they are all in The New York Guide (# 003).
For now, I like to take you with me to what struck me in New York this time. Enjoy!
