A New Yorker’s perfect weekend
They say that New York is the city that never sleeps and we want to see if that’s true. Are you up for a weekend of non-stop fun?
The best way to start the day is with a good breakfast. That’s why we recommend Daniel’s Bagel in midtown Manhattan, where you can try some of the best bagels in the city.
Now that you’re full of energy, we’re ready to hit the Big Apple. And since it’s important to wear the right footwear while walking, we suggest you visit the Camper Store on Fifth Avenue designed by Nendo so that you can choose a pair that suits you.
We’ll head towards to the financial district and have dinner on the banks of the river Hudson
Wandering the length of Fifth Avenue can be tiring so we’ll relax with a good coffee and a muffin while we browse the shelves of McNally Jackson, one of Manhattan’s best book shops. While we’re in Soho we’ll do some shopping in the neighbourhood boutiques and stop at House of Shoes, the Camper store designed by Shigeru Ban, to get our hands on a pair of shoes more suitable for New York nightlife.
Then we’ll head towards to the financial district and have dinner on the banks of the river Hudson, somewhere with incredible views of the downtown skyscrapers, like the Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club. And maybe we can end the night on the terrace of 230 Fifth Avenue, where we’ll take in the view of the Manhattan skyline while we sip Cosmopolitans.
We recommend Daniel’s Bagel in midtown Manhattan, where you can try some of the best bagels in the city.
Now the weekend will be drawing to a close and if you want to feel like a real New Yorker then all you have have to do is spend Sunday in Williamsburg, New York’s famous hipster neighbourhood. Here you can grab a tasty brunch at Egg and have a look around the Artists & Fleas Market, one of New York’s best vintage flea markets.
