La magie des vacances de nostalgie à New York

  The Polar Express Meets The Golden Age of Hollywood “One thing about trains: It doesn’t matter where they’re going. What matters is deciding to get on.” Now, this is not always the case – in fact probably never the case – for busy New Yorkers. You can thank the lovely writers of one of my favorite Tom Hanks movies – The Polar Express – for this dose of inspirational quote; but you can thank the New York Transit Museum for making the quote somewhat a reality for nostalgic and holiday-happy New Yorkers this season. That’s because it truly doesn’t...

Navigating The Great White Way: Broadway Deals and Steals

One of the most common questions I get as a tour guide from both tourists and locals alike is about Broadway; more specifically how to score a good, but cheap seat. And honestly despite Broadway being one of our biggest industries in NYC, this is not an easy question to answer. There are so many avenues to choose from and it’s hard to know which paths are the right ones and which ones are laden with pitfalls and booby traps. However, I believe that despite it’s overwhelming nature everyone deserves to breathe in the “magic perfume” of a Broadway house...

Five Quintessential New York City Restaurants

  New York City and world-class restaurants are often simultaneous thoughts; they go hand in hand. Celebrity chefs go into (and out of) business here and there’s no lack of the coveted Michelin-Starred restaurants scattered around the city. But what marks a restaurant as an unmistakable, quintessential New York City restaurant? Often it’s something unnamable. It’s written on the faces of the regulars who have been coming to the same place for lunch for as long as anyone can remember. Or maybe the restaurant has developed a particular internal culture because it’s had decades, or more to develop it. This...

Escape the City: Day Trips on New York’s Commuter Rails

New York City is fabulous but can be claustrophobic at times, too. All those buildings blotting out  the sky and humans jostling for space can leave you craving the countryside. When you start to dream of cool breezes and wildlife other than pigeons doing fly-bys into your personal space, it’s time to get out of the city. Luckily there are plenty of ways to escape, all of them accessible via New York’s commuter rails. So hop on a train where you’ll snake along the Hudson River, barrel toward the beaches of Long Island, or journey to the Garden State. The...

An Afternoon in Lower Manhattan

Lower Manhattan draws visitors to its narrow, maze-like streets with some of the most iconic landmarks in the world. To get to Wall Street or the Brooklyn Bridge, you have to head down that way.

And then there’s sleek One World Trade Center with its stunning 360 degree city views, and the peaceful and moving September 11 Memorial & Museum. Spend a day in Lower Manhattan and you’ll only add to the list of things you want to do there. Here are some suggestions on how...
