subway stops.

Every time I return to New York, I am reminded that there truly is no other city quite like it. I spend countless hours getting lost in the changing neighborhoods, visiting old favorites and new gems. Though this trip was a mere 48 hours, I thought I’d share some of my favorite destinations. The majority of my shopping is done downtown. However, you would be ill-advised not to pay a visit to Bergdorf Goodman, where the window displays are a masterpiece and the elegance is unrivaled. And while you’re up there, window shopping along Madison Avenue and perhaps a stop in the RL flagship mansion are a must.  Okay moving along. The mix of designers and decor around Prince Street, Spring Street and Broome Street is a dream.  I particularly love Brazilian designer Osklen’s shop and the latest Isabel Marant location. Next I hit the boutiques tucked away in the cobblestone streets of the West Village. Some of my favorites here include…

Freemans Sporting Club for American-made tailored menswear and accessories. (there is another outpost on the Lower East Side)

Murray’s Cheese has what I consider New York’s finest selection of cheeses and everything under to the sun to pair with them. Not to mention, an insanely knowledgeable staff.

The owner of Hotoveli has a passion for finding some of the most unusual and inspiring men and women’s apparel and accessories. Some of the pieces are truly works of art, yet entirely functional. I was addicted as soon as I spotted the Ateliers Ruby helmet.

And one must eat. In this city, dining out is a disciplined ritual. Though there are a plethora of gems to explore and taste, I will only mention the restaurant I dined at with my trusty camera. Macao Trading Company serves up modernized Chinese  plates in a dimly lit space decorated with adventurous treasures to a hip Tribeca clientelle. The truffled mushroom croquettes and Malaysian scallops are not to be missed.
