The Strand Hotel NYC’s Fashionable Feast


The Strand Hotel NYC, located in New York’s fashion district on West 37th Street, has created a cocktail and dining menu inspired by several of the greatest fashion icons in the industry in honor of New York Fashion Week.

The hotel’s restaurant, Strand Bistro, is serving a $38, three-course dinner menu that celebrates some of the top fashion houses. The "Food Is Fashion" menu includes starters like cauliflower soup with a Parmesan crisp, white truffle essence, and chive oil, inspired by Valentino’s 1960 White Collection; and butternut squash risotto with squash purée, sage butter, and maple-smoked bacon inspired by Hermès’ fall 2012 collection.

The main course includes a choice of seared diver scallop with crispy spiced florets, cauliflower purée, and orange brown butter inspired by Christopher Kane’s Spring/Summer 2009 collection; or braised beef Angus short rib with spinach custard and parsnip inspired by the Robert Rodriguez Collection.

The Max Mara Fall 2012 collection is the inspiration for the crispy cheesecake with graham cracker streusel, caramel, and Tahitian vanilla, while Dolce & Gabana’s Fall 2012 collection is the muse for the chef’s chocolate molten cake with crème anglaise and dulce de leche.

The cocktail menu at rooftop bar Top of the Strand is also offering fashionable $15 cocktails that pay tribute to two of the fashion world’s late icons. One cocktail, The Gurley-Brown Show, is inspired by Helen Gurley-Brown, former editor at Cosmopolitan magazine. The potent cocktail consists of prosecco, rhubarb bitters, sugar, and rose petals. The Legend of Zelda cocktail, named for New York fashion socialite Zelda Kaplan, is a mix of jalapeño-infused Avión Silver tequila, fresh cilantro, ginger, and lime.

The special menus are being served until the end of September. Reservations for the special dinner menu are required.

Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, is Myanmar's largest metropolis and a poster child for the country's state of flux after its recent liberalisation. Still a relatively undiscovered destination in Asia, the city is caught between its Colonial heritage with boulevards of once-glorious, decaying architecture, a crop of new entrepreneurs and artists trying to push it into the 21st century, and the local Shwe people just trying to eke out a livelihood.

There's certainy more than enough to keep you occupied for a weekend.

Friday

11.30pm: Touchdown and check in

The Friday Dragonair flight is the best option to fly into Yangon from Hong Kong. After landing at 11:30pm, head straight to your hotel to rest and reset for the weekend ahead.

Belmond Governor&rsquos Residence is rarely disputed as the best luxury hotel in Yangon. The elegant, 1920s Colonial mansion is a haven that takes you to another time and place, and the lush, serene grounds feel like a true home with the exceptional staff anticipating your every need. Rooms are beautifully appointed with teak wood flooring and carved furniture, and dining options in the open air verandas are excellent. Their Governor's Getaway package is perfect for weekend trips.

While the choice of luxury accomodations in Yangon is still quite limited, The Strand and Savoy are both good alternative options. The Strand is an iconic landmark built in 1901, while Savoy Hotel is a little more off the beaten path. An intimate 30-room mansion full of old-world charm, the boutique Savoy is conveniently located just a short walk from Shwedagon Pagoda.

Saturday

9am: Mohinga breakfast

Start the day with a bowl of mohinga, Burma&rsquos favourite breakfast and what many consider to be its national dish. The rice noodles in thick fish soup, eaten with a mix of condiments that include garlic, onions, lemongrass, ginger and fish sauce, are delicious and filling. You'll find them at any streetside vendor or local café&mdashbut if your stomach isn&rsquot quite up for an adventure yet, most hotel buffets serve it as well.

10am: Downtown heritage walk

The Secretariat (Photo: Grace Chee/Hong Kong Tatler)

Head downtown and take a nostalgic walk back in time to the 19th century, amongst the crumbling Colonial-era mansions and moss-covered brick buildings that line Pansodan Street and Strand Road.

Don&rsquot miss the Accountant General&rsquos Office, the Former Myanmar Railway Headquarters and the gated Secretariat (General Aung San, father of Burmese democracy, was assassinated here in 1947), all patiently awaiting restoration in their decaying grandeur.

12pm: Ferry across to Dalla

Pansodan Ferry Terminal is right next to Strand Road. A ten-minute ride on the crowded public ferry will take you to Dalla, a tiny provincial township just across the bustling Yangon River. Take a 30-minute trishaw tour around the local villages for an eye-opening experience of life for the average Burmese. While the short excursion is definitely doable on your own, we suggest hiring a tour guide to ensure a safe and smooth experience.

1pm: Tea leaf salad and coconut noodles

For lunch, stop by hipster favourite Rangoon Tea House, popular with both the expat crowd and young, well-to-do Burmese.The lower level is a light-filled café, while the upper floor Toddy Bar has a moodier vibe. This is a great place to try traditional Burmese recipes and street snacks, which are known for their strong flavours&mdashwe recommend the coconut noodles and the tea leaf salad, a unique local dish of pickled tea leaves and crispy nuts quite unlike anything we've tasted.

2pm: Gallery hopping

Myanm/art gallery space (Photo: Courtesy of Myanm/art)

In the afternoon, explore the blossoming local art scene downtown. Still in its infancy on the international market, Burmese contemporary art has many undervalued treasures amongst the emotive reflections of the country&rsquos political and social turmoil.

River Gallery is a pioneer and mainstay in the Rangoon art community. Opened in 2005 by New Zealander Gill Pattison, the gallery was originally located in Strand Hotel but has since moved just around the corner to the Chindwin Chambers. The sizable space carries paintings, sculptures and installations from some of Myanmar&rsquos best artists, including Aung Ko, Aung Myint and Htein Lin.

Nathalie Johnston&rsquos labour of love Myanm/art is also a must-visit. Representing young, emerging artists using alternative mediums, the gallery provides a free exhibition space that helps them gain international exposure and access to buyers. Afterwards, catch your breath at Pansuriya café downstairs with a cup of lah phet yay, then head next door for a look at Ivan Pun&rsquos newly opened furniture showroom-slash-eatery Paribawga.

6pm: Dinner and drinks at the Strand

Sarkies Bar (Photo: Courtesy of Strand Hotel)

End the day with dinner and drinks at the recently (and beautifully) renovated Strand Hotel, a historic landmark from the Colonial era on the riverfront Strand boulevard. Sip on a Strand Sour at Sarkies Bar, where the likes of Rudyard Kipling or Orson Welles once sated their thirst, before a mediterranean feast at The Strand Restaurant.

Sunday

10am: A ride on the circle train

Take a cab to the Yangon central station and get on board the Circular train alongside Burmese commuters for a taste of local life. The entire loop winds through the city and into the countryside, taking about three hours, but you can get off whenever you want. We suggest alighting at Hledan station for a walk around the morning market.

12pm: Lunch al-fresco

Photo: Courtesy of Kipling&rsquos Restaurant

The charming Kipling&rsquos Restaurant offers delicious pan-Asian cuisine (think sea bass curry with coconut cream, lemongrass chicken and teriyaki beef brisket) in elegant surroundings. If the weather isn't too hot, ask for a table on the shaded wooden terrace for an al-fresco lunch.

2pm: Shopping for ethnic textiles

Spend a few hours wandering through the Bogyoke Aung San Market (formerly known as the Scott Market), a warren of little stores hawking jewellery, textiles, rattan crafts and more. Stock up on longyis (the Burmese sarong) and thanaka paste (the ubiquitous white 'paint' you see on Burmese faces) to bring home for souvenirs, then head upstairs to Yoyamay, a slickly run boutique with exquisite, collector-quality ethnic Chin textiles.

Yoyamay, #20, 2/F Main Building, Bogyoke Market, Bogyoke Aung San Road, 11143 Yangon, +95 9 450 029481, yoyamay.com

6pm: Sunset at Shwedagon Pagoda

We&rsquove saved the best for the last. Sunset at the gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon&rsquos most emblematic landmark and Myanmar&rsquos most sacred Buddhist pagoda, is a magnificent way to remember the country. Take a seat next to the pilgrims and admire the sixth century stupa as it transforms from a bright, shimmering gold into a gentle, subdued glimmer against the dusky blue sky.

8pm: Dinner at Le Planteur

Photo: Courtesy of Le Planteur

End the trip with a candlelit French dinner at the elegant Le Planteur. Located next to the picturesque Inya Lake, it&rsquos one of Yangon&rsquos best fine-dining restaurants. Have one last glass of wine at the bar, before catching the red-eye back to Hong Kong.

Chef Kelvin Fernandez — recent winner of the “People’s Choice: Best Savory Dish” award at the annual Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit Food Festival — has brought his culinary talents and flavorful vision to Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City as the vacation ownership property’s new executive chef.

Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City is a stylish, boutique property located in the heart of the city’s Fashion District, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It was formerly the Strand Hotel.

As a kid growing up in Queens, becoming a world-renowned chef never entered Kelvin Fernandez’s mind. But it was a Long Island City High School cooking class—a class he took on a whim to impress his girlfriend—that helped him discover his passion and skills.

Today, Chef Fernandez is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, French-trained, a two-time winner at the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit Food Festival, NYC’s youngest executive chef, runner up on Food Network’s “Chopped,” and winner on both FYI Network’s “Man vs. Child” and Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay” show.

Chef Kelvin Fernandez’s Award Winning Braised Beef Short Rib Arepa

Just a few weeks ago, Fernandez’s black truffle arepa with mushroom duxelle parmegianno reggiano was awarded the “People’s Choice: Best Savory Dish” at the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit Food Festival in Boston.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Chef Fernandez to the Marriott Vacation Club Pulse family,” said John Loizos, General Manager, Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City. “He is a true culinary talent and we’re excited to have him bring his dynamic energy to the property’s dining experiences. With his passion and creativity, I know our Owners, guests and New York locals will look forward to dining with us again and again.”

In his role as executive chef at Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City, Chef Fernandez oversees all the property’s culinary operations, including its two dining outlets, the Strand Bistro, featuring seasonal, modern American cuisine with Latin influences, and the iconic Top of The Strand lounge, widely recognized as one of the best rooftop bars in the world.

“I’m looking forward to creating amazing food that fuses layers of flavors with different textures,” Chef Fernandez said. “That’s what makes a dish exciting, from the first bite to the last.” Crispy arepas made with braised beef short rib, creamy avocado and lime-scented sour cream are one of his favorite creations on the menu. “When I figured out that I wanted to do an arepa, I knew that I wanted to do something different. They’re inspired by my Dominican roots. It’s a Colombian recipe with a Dominican twist.”


The Drake, New York

The Most Famous Hotels in the World lists nine hotels in New York.

On a front page story in the Metropolitan section (October 6, 2013), the New York Times reported "Harry Macklowe Gambles Again: A developer known for wild swings of fortune builds a Park Avenue apartment tower a quarter-mile high." On the site of the old Drake Hotel (demolished in 2007), Macklowe is building a luxurious apartment building which, upon completion, will be, at 1,398 feet the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere. The apartments will be large, and very expensive, with an 8,255-square-foot six bedroom penthouse on the 95th floor being listed for $82.55 million, or $10,000 a square-foot. 432 Park Avenue was designed by the world-famous Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly.

The Drake Hotel was built in 1927. When it opened its doors in the "Roaring Twenties", it boasted innovations such as automatic refrigeration as well as spacious, luxurious rooms and suites. Bing and Bing, noted builders, owned and operated the hotel for more than 35 years. In the early 1960s, entrepreneur William Zeckendorf acquired the hotel, added guest rooms and opened New York's first discotheque, Shepheard's. In 1965, Loews Hotel Corporation acquired the Drake and hired me to be their first General Manager. My recollections are, therefore, based on the two and a half exciting years that I served as GM.

The hotel's restaurant was the Drake Room which opened in December 21, 1945. It was the pet project of hotelman Walter Redell (Cornell graduate from Cleveland). The Drake Room was a success from the start with its unique ceramic tree, great food, and impeccable service under the direction of Maitre de Nino Schiavone. Stars of the entertainment world, bankers and politicians made the Drake Room one of the most cosmopolitan rooms in New York. Redell hired the best salon piano player in town for the opening. Cy Walter remained the featured performer for six years. When I became General Manager, I brought Cy Walter back to the Drake Room and got MGM Records to produce a fabulous LP: "Cy Walter at The Drake," with a cover photograph of Cy sitting at a Steinway grand piano on 56th Street under the Drake porte cochere.

One of the most famous dishes in the Drake Room was Steak Nino, a version of Steak Diane. Evidence suggests that Steak Diane was an American invention of the late 1950s when French cooking was all the rage. Jane Nickerson's article "Steak Worthy of the Name" (New York Times, January 25, 1953), suggests three likely candidates in New York City as originators: the Drake Hotel, the Sherry-Netherland Hotel and the Colony Restaurant. The Drake's Nino Schiavone claimed that he was the first to introduce Steak Nino to New York and, in fact, to the entire United States. Nino cooked the prime steak at tableside in sweet butter mixed with fresh chives and other seasonings flamed with cognac and sherry. Nino distributed nearly twenty-five thousand copies of his famous recipe all over the world.

The most famous and successful discotheque in Manhattan was Shepheard's at the Drake which was open seven days a week for cocktails, dinner and supper with continuous dancing from 7:30PM to 3AM. Luncheon was served Monday through Friday and a special brunch on Sunday from noon to 4PM. At lunch there were fashion shows and for some years, a talk radio program featuring the Metropolitan Opera's Mimi Benzell as hostess with famous guests.

We printed and distributed a card entitled, "How to Do the Newest Discotheque Dances at Shepheard's in New York's Drake Hotel" with step-by-step instructions to dance the Jerk, Watusi, Frug and the Monkey. Killer Joe Piro's party was regular feature at Shepheard's. The discotheque was so successful that patrons lined up on 56th Street and around the corner on Park Avenue to wait (even on the winter's coldest nights) to be admitted where they paid a hefty cover charge to dance to disco music.

The Drake Hotel's guest list included such famous classical musicians as Alicia del la Rocha, Artur Rubinstein, Dame Myra Hess and Glenn Gould. Also celebrities like Milton Berle, Leon Bibb, Paul Anka, Muhammed Ali (soft spoken and kind), Barry Goldwater and many more. On my office wall, the following framed note on Drake Hotel letterhead with a signed photograph is hung in a prominent location:

Dear Mr. Turkel,*
I was very touched by your remembering my birthday and sending me this lovely bottle of Moét et Chandon, which we drank with great pleasure. At the same time, I wanted to tell you that we find ourselves very comfortable in the Drake and are delighted with the service and attention we get.
Sincerely yours,
Artur Rubenstein

* Prior to forming his hotel consulting firm, Stan Turkel was the Product Line Manager for Hotel/Motel Operations at the International Telephone & Telegraph Co. overseeing the Sheraton Corporation of America. Before joining IT&T, he was the General Manager of the Summit Hotel (762 Rooms), General Manager of the Drake Hotel (680 Rooms) and Resident Manager of the Americana Hotel (1842 Rooms), all in New York City.


London’s spectacular Art Deco hotels.

“Art Deco” is a distinctively elegant style of architecture that came to London in the 1920s and 1930s and is still in evidence today. This article and its photos give you an overview of London’s stunning Art Deco hotels.

Staying in an Art Deco hotel arguably gives you a truer feeling of “being in London” than you would get from a contemporary or chain hotel.

It evokes a feeling of excitement and glamour, particularly when you are lounging around the hotel’s public spaces.

You can find Art Deco showcased in many coffee-table books and websites. If you like the style, then why not consider staying in one of London’s gorgeous Art Deco hotels?

Art Deco has left its mark on hotels as prominent as Claridge’s, the Dorchester, the Savoy, the Sheraton Park Lane and the Strand Palace.

Several have been tastefully refurbished while retaining their Art Deco heritage. Here we provide a brief summary of each Art Deco hotel.

Please check TripAdvisor guest reviews before booking, since the hotels all score differently in terms of service and value for money:

Original Art Deco features are intermingled with modern touches giving a stylish, elegant feel. There are bold lines and sweeping curves all around you. For me personally, Claridge’s is the ultimate Art Deco hotel – a feast for the eyes the moment you enter. Do make sure that you specifically ask for an Art Deco room or suite when you book.

The timeless elegance of Claridge’s gives you a great sense of the glamour and glitz of 1920s London

The Dorchester:

The style here is quite traditional, with the atmosphere almost of a distinguished country retreat, although it is also quite ostentatious. This hotel has a certain air of tranquillity about itself, reinforced by its excellent spa services. To assess it against Claridge’s our head-to-head comparison of London’s ultra-deluxe hotels may prove useful.

Even the China Tang restaurant at the Dorchester was designed with Art Deco touches

Savoy Hotel:

The Savoy is truly one of London’s most spectacular Art Deco hotels, but is currently closed for a major £100m refurbishment. Although it was originally due to reopen in 2009, delays in the project have pushed this back to 2010. But it will certainly be worth the wait. According to its General Manager, the 1929 iconic steel canopy is being restored as well as some truly luxurious Art Deco guestrooms with all the mod-cons. Other highlights expected include a new bar and tea shop, a set of re-launched River Suites with views over the Thames and a rooftop swimming pool.

The Savoy is a true London icon and we can’t wait to see it reopen in 2010 after its exciting Art Deco restoration

Sheraton on Park Lane (picture at top of page):

This hotel was opened in 1927 at the height of Art Deco’s heyday as can be clearly seen from its stylish public areas. These include its famous Ballroom which has featured in Jeeves and Wooster, Brideshead Revisited and James Bond’s Goldeneye. The hotel claims that all its rooms also have Art Deco touches. If you stay there, you should ask for a room with views over magnificent Green Park.

Strand Palace Hotel:

This was once one of London’s most glamorous Art Deco buildings and has now been completely updated. It is an iconic building which is perfectly placed if your London visit is about theatres, sightseeing and nightlife. There is currently a contest to celebrate the hotel’s 100 year centenary in October 2009, giving 100 rooms away for 100 pence! Even outside the special offers this is probably the cheapest of London’s Art Deco hotels.

The Strand Palace Hotel is a landmark London hotel almost equidistant to Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and the River Thames

By the way, another of London’s most famous Art Deco buildings is known as the “Hoover Factory” (now tastefully converted into a Tesco supermarket!) in Perivale. It’s a little off the beaten track but worth checking out if you’re an Art Deco aficionado.

The Strand, Stockholm

Peering up at the 300 hanging pendant lights that take centre stage in the atrium restaurant of Stockholm&rsquos Strand hotel, I was blown away by the stunning design of the newly renovated hotel.

Slap bang in a trendy harbourside location in Sweden&rsquos capital, the Radisson Collection Strand Stockholm, is the perfect combination of classic architecture, and modern Swedish design.

With local architecture firm Wingårdhs on board, the hotel&rsquos dramatic makeover has thrusted it into the 21 st century, while honouring its historic past from when it first opened its doors in 1912.

The bedrooms are kitted out with hanging pendant globe lights, plush velvet armchairs and parquet flooring with a colour scheme reflecting the surrounding neighbourhood: greys, deep blues and bottle greens.

The hidden speakeasy-style bar with its marble flooring and brass accents is the perfect setting for a post-dinner nightcap, with subtle nods to the VIP guests that enjoyed its surroundings: Greta Garbo, Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn to name a few.

The shining star of the show though is the atrium restaurant, where guests dine underneath the glow of hundreds of twinkling pendant lights as they feast on everything from Swedish Skagen to elk salami and Swedish &lsquofried Brie.&rsquo

And while it&rsquod be easy to stay nestled in the hotel&rsquos cosy surroundings during Sweden&rsquos harsh winters, it&rsquos the perfect base to explore the city when the weather is a little warmer.

Take a wander through Gamla Stan, or even better explore it above ground in a roof top hiking tour on one of the old town buildings.

For something a little quirkier, grab a ferry directly outside the hotel and head for a night of fun at the Gröna Lund theme park and the ABBA museum.

With so much to do in the beautiful and compact city, the Strand is a welcome home to return to after a day of exploring, with the staff greeting you with huge smiles, and the rooms greeting you with incredibly comfy beds&hellip

Aside from the aforementioned beds &ndash the staff at the hotel were just so welcoming and ready to help with everything from restaurant recommendations to taxi bookings.

A rooftop bar would offer incredible views of Stockholm, the hotel's location is AMAZING.

NEED TO KNOW

Rooms start at &euro128.26 per night, with 170 in total.

The hotel also offers breakfast, lunch, brunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and cocktails - result!

Must-do: Book one of the in-room beauty treatments if you&rsquore in need of a pamper


New York’s Best Year-Round Rooftop Bars

There are a lot of melancholy endings associated with autumn say goodbye to sunning on the beach, exquisite produce, and lounging around with frosty cocktails on rooftops. But wait just one second… while you’ll probably want to swap out that strawberry daiquiri for a whiskey-based, maple-scented tipple in NYC, there’s no real reason that drinking on rooftops needs to be relegated to summer. Not when there are so many hotels, bars and restaurants boasting convertible, sky-high spaces, suitable for sipping spirits in all year round! And we’ve rounded up some of our favorites – from the Hudson Hotel’s urban après-ski resort to Eataly’s own Birreria and more!

Hudson Hotel

Shortly after Oktoberfest, this Central Park-adjacent hotel transforms its stylish sky deck into an equally chic, enclosed ski lodge, complete with faux snow, vintage toboggans, stuffed bears, fur throws, and an Alpine-style menu of toasty Fondue and Aztec Hot Chocolate. Yes, really. It’s worth stopping by just to see the transformation!

Birreria

Officially the “highest brewery in New York,” Eataly’s rooftop restaurant and microbrewery serves unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally carbonated cask ales, as well as hearty, family-style feasts of Braised Pork Shoulder, housemade Sausages and Grilled Meats under the stars and city skyline. Lest we forget to remind you that Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich are behind this delicious Italian wonderland.

Top of the Strand

In the heart of the city astride the modern Strand hotel, this year-round, glass-enclosed cocktail lounge was overseen by the set designer of Sex and the City, so expect a super fashionable oasis. The room is decked with patterned banquettes, oodles of greenery, and there’s a sexy cocktail selection of Mint Juleps and Strawberry Gimlets, from award winning resident mixologist, Juan Coronado.

Spyglass

Inspired by the telescope Jimmy Stewart peeked through in “Rear Window,” you’ll be able to play voyeur to some of the most spectacular sights the city has to offer, including a dead-on view of the Empire State Building. And considering the penthouse space is perched directly atop David Burke’s restaurant, fabrick, you know the food is a cut above, featuring Avocado Panna Cotta, Fluke Ceviche, and Lobster BLT Steam Buns.

Hotel Chantelle

Decked out like a lush Parisian garden, with lamppost lighting, park benches and verdant, hanging plants, a retractable roof takes Hotel Chantelle’s sophisticated al fresco space seamlessly from summer to winter and back again. Watch colorful leaves or snowflakes settle on the glittering glass enclosure, as you cuddle up snuggly with luxurious eats from executive chef Seth Levine, the likes of White Truffle Flatbreads, lobster and caviar-topped Deviled Eggs, and Oysters with yuzu pearls and horseradish foam.

Penthouse808

Located atop the Ravel Hotel in Long Island City, this rooftop lounge has unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline. And with retractable awnings, clear vinyl encasings and a slew of heaters cozying up the 8,000-square foot space, it’s also been duly winterized, so snack on Pacific Rim-inspired bites like Grilled Beef Satay, and sip on breezy cocktails like the rum and coconut “Mahalo,” and pretend you’re still at some exotic, sandy locale, not decked out in closed toed heels and a lined leather jacket on a roof deck in Queens.

The Press Lounge

Offering 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River, this 16-story high lounge is outfitted with streamlined leather couches and flickering fire pits, and offers a menu of seasonally-inspired cocktails and small plates from its sister restaurant, PRINT, including the “Dauphin” with whiskey, agave nectar and radish, and a variety of salumi and farmstead cheeses.

Upstairs at the Kimberly

This 3,000-square foot space sits 30 stories high above the Kimberly Hotel in Midtown, featuring three separate indoor & outdoor venues, retractable glass ceilings and walls, heated floors, and awe-inspiring views of the Chrysler Building. Couple that with signature cocktails like the spiced, honeyed “Rum Service,” and small plates such as Duck Cigars with pomegranate, and you’ll have little reason to mourn the end of summer.

14. Get lost in the MoMA.

All of New York City&rsquos museums are special in their own way, but The Museum of Modern Art is special in every way. Of all the places in New York City you can go to be inspired (there are many!), the MoMA is one of the very best.

If you love and appreciate modern art, the MoMA in Midtown is a must. And if you don&rsquot like art at all, then this place might just be the one that changes your mind.

15. Walk across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.

You can&rsquot miss taking a leisurely stroll across the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge. You just can&rsquot. Period.

Best case scenario, it will be a sunny, windless day, and you&rsquoll enjoy a lovely walk and spectacular views of New York City&rsquos skyline and the East River. Worst case scenario, it will be cold and windy, but you&rsquoll still love every second.

16. Eat your weight in Italian goodness at Eataly.

Italian food lovers, where you at?

During your trip, make sure to stop by our beloved Eataly for the ultimate Italian cuisine experience.

19. Eat pastrami at Katz&rsquos.

If you leave the city without eating a pastrami sandwich at Katz&rsquos Delicatessen, did you even go at all? Nope.

$20 for one sandwich might sound a little crazy (okay, a lot crazy), but in this case, the hype and the price are justified.

New York Public Library/Jiahui Huang

20. Work at the New York Public Library.

Okay, okay. So working isn&rsquot usually something you&rsquod add to any bucket list. But sometimes, stuff&rsquos gotta get done. While in NYC, there&rsquos no better place to work/study than the historic and beautiful New York Public Library on 5th and 42nd.

22. Chill out in Washington Square Park.

Washington Square Park is the unofficial center of NYU, so naturally, the area teems with students, artists, and other interesting individuals. You&rsquoll see a variety of people, but around these parts, most will be very good-looking and well-dressed.

In the summer, enjoy the sunshine and do a bit of people watching.

Tiger at the Bronx Zoo/Erick Gustafson

23. Get wild at the Bronx Zoo.

The Bronx Zoo is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States, so yeah, it&rsquos kind of a big deal. The zoo&rsquos most popular furry friends include lions, tigers, giraffes, polar bears, and even gorillas!

MET/Maciek Lulko

24. Experience The Met before it opens.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art &mdash which has been around since 1870 and features over 5,000 years of human history &mdash is amazing on its own. But it&rsquos 1,000,000 times better without the crowds!

Book the VIP EmptyMet Tour, and you&rsquoll gain entry into the museum 1.5 hours before it opens. No more than 24 other guests will experience this incredible opportunity with you, so in other words, you&rsquoll virtually have the place to yourself! Trust us, it is worth every single penny!

However, if you want to visit during normal hours, purchase this three-day admission ticket to The Met, which also includes access to The Met Cloisters (see #57 below) and The Met Breuer!

27. Walk The High Line.

When the sun&rsquos out, there&rsquos no better place than The High Line to spend an afternoon!

Back in the 1930s, the The High Line was home to nothing more than freight train tracks. But today, The High Line has been refurbished into a mile-and-a-half long park, filled with greenery and awesome views of Chelsea.

This will be an experience you won&rsquot forget!

30. Find an awesome read at the Strand.

The Strand Book Store is the place for the literary fiends of New York City. The Strand&rsquos endless rows of shelves overflow with new, old, rare, and out-of-print books. The famous shop, which has been open since 1927, offers over 2.5 million different books and cannot be missed!

Ahhh, that lovely old book smell &mdash do you know what we mean?

Shake Shack/Shinya Suzuki

31. Try out Shake Shack.

Shake Shack is quite possibly the city&rsquos favorite burger! Since its humble beginnings as a summer cart between 2001 and 2003, today Shake Shack has expanded its empire throughout New York and has even ventured into California and Nevada. All of this, without losing the quality of their burgers.

Just know that In-N-Out still is &mdash and always will be &mdash better than Shake Shack. This is the obvious truth, but since we&rsquore Californians first and foremost, we&rsquore obliged to say so!

32. Snag tickets to a comedy show.

We love spending an evening laughing our asses off at a comedy club. In our opinion, the best one is the legendary Gotham Comedy Club, which always features the best headliners around.

33. Admire the views from Top of the Rock.

Some say that the views from Top of the Rock Observation Deck are the best in the entire city. We can&rsquot say we disagree. You really can&rsquot beat 360° views of this chaotic, beautiful concrete jungle &mdash especially at sunset.

Click here to book your tickets for the Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

34. Grab a sandwich from Faicco&rsquos Italian Specialties.

In our opinion, Faicco&rsquos Italian Specialties is a New York City staple and a beautiful gem of a deli &mdash though so many people don&rsquot know about its greatness. So without further ado, let us introduce you to the best Italian sandwich you might ever find in the States!

The sandwich above features crispy, juicy chicken cutlet, broccoli rabe, pesto, and fresh mozzarella. Yaaaasssss.

35. Shop for less at sample sales.

When in New York City, keep your eyes and ears out for sample sales! &ldquoBut,&rdquo you ask, &ldquowhat is a sample sale?&rdquo Well, basically, sample sales are like pop-up shops selling high-fashion garments at crazy low prices. This is because brands are either trying to test out future products, or get rid of past merchandise.

36. People watch in Union Square.

Union Square is like the cousin of Washington Square Park. But the rebellious cousin, of course.

This area is filled with people doing their own thing they don&rsquot care who you are, and they don&rsquot care if you watch. This is the New York City that I know and love. There are street performers everywhere, a farmer&rsquos market a few days per week (see #9 above), and nice views all around.

37. Take a street food tour.

Whether you take a self-guided food cart/truck tour, or go with an expert guide, the important thing is that you do have a street food feast!

The Halal Guys/City Foodsters

40. Feast The Halal Guys after hours.

The Halal Guys is our go-to food cart any time of day, but especially after a long night out. Many of The Halal Guys carts are open late &ndash some of them until 4:00 am, every day of the week &ndash and their chicken and gyro platters smothered in white sauce always hit the spot.

41. Go thrifting.

Everyone wants to go shopping on 5th Avenue when they visit New York City. But if you&rsquod rather save money, have a unique experience, and escape from the heavy crowds, go thrifting instead.

Beacon&rsquos Closet, Crossroads, What Goes Around Comes Around, and Buffalo Exchange are some of NYC&rsquos best thrift shop options.

42. Eat chicken and waffles.

New York City has bestowed upon us so many glorious gifts. But the greatest of all? Chicken and waffles &mdash as if it weren&rsquot obvious enough!

In the Lower East Side, you&rsquoll find skateboarders roaming the streets, pop-up restaurants galore, and some of the city&rsquos oldest residents.

44. Watch chaos unfold at Grand Central Station.

Grand Central Station is the busiest train station in the States, but that probably comes as no surprise.

Thousands of people come here daily to take tours, enjoy the station&rsquos 60 different retailers and 35 eateries, and of course, to simply get to where they&rsquore going. As you can imagine, it&rsquos the kind of chaos that makes for great people watching.

9/11 Memorial/Steve Gardner

45. Pay your respects at the 9/11 Memorial.

9/11 still is &mdash and probably always will be &mdash a very sensitive, emotional subject for us all to talk and think about. It&rsquos an important part of our history that we&rsquoll never forget. If you&rsquod like to, you can visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum during your trip to remember what happened that day, learn more about the tragedy, and pay your respects.

From late spring to early fall, the best way to get around this massive city is on a bike. And the benefits are endless! You&rsquore exercising, getting a tan, and exploring the city, rather than simply sitting in an old cab or in subway silence.

Starting off a new year in the greatest city in the world? This is another thing I just couldn&rsquot leave off of this New York City Bucket List.

98. Go to Coney Island.

In the summer, Coney Island becomes a hot spot for beachgoers looking to get a tan or cool off in the ocean. But there are plenty of other activities to enjoy, from roller coasters and boardwalk games, ti arcade games, bike riding, and much more. Go and see how New Yorkers and tourists spend their warm summer days!

PS: On the 4th of July, Nathan&rsquos Hot Dogs hosts its annual Hot Dog Eating Contest!

99. Take in the chaos of Times Square.

If you&rsquore visiting for the first time, there&rsquos almost no way Times Square won&rsquot be on your New York City bucket list. Times Square is one of the most colorful, chaotic, and captivating places in the city, no matter how many times you&rsquove seen it.

The endless stream of bright, flashing billboards, the crazy bustle of tourists, the annoying people trying to hand you flyers and sell you bus tours, and the smells of street food carts, are all part of the experience.

100. Tour the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

First-time visitors to New York City usually wouldn&rsquot dream of missing Lady Liberty and Ellis Island!

If you feel the same, then you can book these tickets, which include a guided tour and entrance to both attractions.


My Whirlwind New York Fashion Week Adventure

Up until a few days ago, Fashion Week was something I’d only seen online, in magazines, and on TV. But recently I had the rare opportunity to travel to NYC to share with you what the magic, energy and visual candy store Fashion Week 2015 is! In one lightning-fast day I travelled with a crew of friends to film interviews, take photos, and generally soak up the fashionable scenery. Let’s go!

A sunrise train departed from our sleepy West Chester, PA station. With me: Russell (Q stylist extraordinaire) and Kaitlin (social media mastermind). We were over-the-top giddy to be on our way!

First stop: The Strand hotel, where awaiting us was Jilian Veran from Laura Gellar Beauty. She worked her magic on me to get my makeup Fashion-Week ready, while Russell worked on my hair. They schooled me all the while on what looks were “it” for Fall/Winter 2015 like bold eye brows, lots of mascara, glossy lips, clean "unmade" skin, and touseled and messy waves. Thanks guys!

After changing into a sleek Dennis Basso lamb leather jacket, we headed up to the rooftop to film. With the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop, I had to take a moment to aknowledge how amazing this day was going to be.

Next, it was time to hit the streets of NYC with our camera crew. Next on the agenda: a visit to Dennis Basso's Madison Avenue flagship boutique for interviews…and a surprise!

After touring the couture wonderland that is the DB studio, we interviewed Dennis about his upcoming runway show. He is seriously one of the hardest working men in fashion!

After a few photos, I joked that it would be a dream come true to try on one of his intricate, deep red couture gowns. Dennis insisted I make that dream a reality right away.

Can I just say I still feel like royalty having donned that masterpiece?? And, it's a color I think you're going to be seeing a LOT more of come winter! Thank you Dennis for turning me (briefly) into Cinderella!

Next it was off to Stan Herman’s Bryant Park Studio, where Fashion Week was born. And did you know Stan himself was the mastermind behind its creation? We spoke with Stan about how Fashion Week was his brainchild, born of the need to put the US on the map as a force in fashion. Decades later, it’s obvious it worked. What a marvel.

With just an hour to go before our train departed back to PA, we jetted off to one of the hundreds of runway shows happening in the heart of NYC. We filmed our farewells outside of the old NYC post office, where Jeremy Scott’s edgy designs were on the runways inside. My head was spinning taking in all the fashionable looks that passers-by were wearing. I’m so inspired to shake up my wardrobe now!

It’s so hard to believe it all happened in the span of about 6 hours! But it couldn’t have happened at all without a rockstar crew of hard working (but crazy fun) professionals. As I hopped back on a train to West Chester, I felt a wave of gratitude and and I real "I LOVE MY JOB" moment!
