April 2018

NEW YORK

Being that I am no fan of winter, just hearing the word “April” gets me excited. It is in this month that I am unleashed from the shackles of unwieldy winter coats and oppressive scarves, when I can finally don a light jacket and become motivated to start walking for miles again, revisiting favorite city areas. In our story “Curated Neighborhoods,” we guide you to some key sections of the city, filled with shops and attractions for your particular passions. Afterward, if you are keen to find an unusual watering hole for a before-dinner drink, check out which speakeasies really stay true to the original Prohibition concept, hidden behind delis and grocery stores. Elsewhere, our calendar will guide you to the biggest events this month, and do check out the articles on what’s happening up in the Bronx and down in Greenwich Village. Let the spring season begin!

In 1988, film producer Jane Rosenthal (above) co-founded Tribeca Productions with Robert De Niro, going on to achieve decades of success with hits like the “Meet the Parents” franchise, “Wag the Dog,” “Analyze This” and “About a Boy.” She also was a producer on the film “A Bronx Tale,” and the current Broadway musical, “A Bronx Tale.” Rosenthal is the CEO and Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises, which oversees the Tribeca Film Festival (April 18-29). The festival is currently in its 17th year of operation; formed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, it was seen as a way to help out in the community. “What could we do for the community? We weren’t firefighters or policemen, so we thought OK, ‘What can we do as filmmakers?’ So, we did a film festival: Now it’s 17 years later, and we’re still doing it,” explains Rosenthal.—Robert Piper


Greenwich Village, known simply as “The Village” by locals, is the city's bohemian capital.

Finding Your Turf Three NYC neighborhoods, with three very distinct personalities. By Karen Tina Harrison


PHOTOS: HECKSCHER PLAYGROUND, COURTESY CENTRAL PARK CONSERVANCY; WESTFIELD WORLD TRADE CENTER, COURTESY WESTFIELD; DON’T TELL MAMA, ANDY S. DRACHENBERG/DON’T TELL MAMA

WHATEVER YOUR PASSION, you can indulge it in New York, especially if you know where to look. These three neighborhoods understand your obsession. LOWER MANHATTAN In New York, the emphasis is on the new. But history surrounds you in the city’s birthplace, Manhattan Island’s southern tip. To see it all, look for the free, red Downtown Connection bus, with 38 stops. One must: the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House, at the bottom of the island. Inside is the admission-free George Gustav Heye Center, part of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian—a fitting tribute to New York’s original residents, the Lenape people, who lived on the other side of the Dutch built wall that became Wall Street. The Stone Street Historic District, a time capsule one block long and two wide, preserves the scale of the 17th century. The pedestrian-only area is lined with cafés like Stone Street Tavern. St. Paul’s Chapel, built in 1766, survived the Great Fire of 1776— and in 2001 withstood the destruction of the World Trade Center, one block away. Still a community hub, St. Paul’s often offers free classical concerts at lunchtime. For eats, dig into a steak at Delmonico’s, America’s oldest, continuously operating restaurant. You’ll want to take a peek at The Beekman hotel, originally built in 1881 as offices for bankers and lawyers. One World Trade Center has a mesmerizing time-lapse elevator which whooshes you up to One World Observatory. Another “FiDi” (Financial District) thrill is the Oculus, which houses a subway hub and Westfield World Trade Center. Come hungry: This mall has Eataly, Épicerie Boulud, Shake Shack and lots more.

UPPER WEST SIDE New York families cherish the Upper West Side for its rambling apartments and cultural landmarks. The gorgeous, massive Lincoln Center complex gives kids half-off ticket prices and runs family events galore, including the WeBop jazz classes for kids. The nabe’s biggest draw, though, is the the massive American Museum of Natural History. Major kiddie bait: a 122-foot Titanosaurus model; the dazzling Butterfly

Conservatory; and the “Dark Universe” space show at the museum’s splendid Hayden Planetarium. Post-museum, kids burn off steam in Central Park at the Mariners’ Playground, Heckscher Playground or Summit Rock, the highest natural elevation in the park (and climbable). When hunger strikes, Jacob’s Pickles slings succulent home cooking morning till night. Known citywide for its marquee dish, The Meatball Shop serves a $7 “Baller in Training” meal for kids. Levain Bakery bakes the city’s most-loved squishy cookie. Your kid’s Levain Bakery treat won’t last, but an uncommon plaything from the old-school Stationery and Toy World will. And, speaking of toys, not just girls love the Barbie doll windows done by the artist/owner of Apthorp Cleaners.

THEATER DISTRICT New York’s Theater District is more than theaters. It’s where the Broadway community lives and lounges. Remain calm if you spot a star browsing at The Drama Book Shop, a welcoming place with miles of books and scripts, free Wi-Fi, a kids’ theater and a live-in dog named Chester. Ready to eat? Since 1965, Joe Allen has been serving Broadway stars and their fans. While visiting, take note of the Broadway posters known as the restaurant’s “flop wall.” As the restaurant states on its website, “Everyone remembers the hits, but we revel in the flops.” Hourglass Tavern’s threecourse pre-theater dinner costs $23.95, and its upstairs Bettibar pours for theater folk. And, if you’ve got what it takes, get up after 9 pm and belt out a song at Don’t Tell Mama’s piano bar. Pick a piece of official Broadway merch from the Theatre Circle Shop. Triton Gallery, which first opened in 1965, harbors a century’s worth of Broadway “window card” posters and art. Got a dramatic sweet tooth? Kee’s Chocolates creates the champagne and passion-fruit bonbons messengered to Broadway stars’ dressing rooms.

Hide and Seek Prohibition may be long over, but these cool speakeasies live on in the Big Apple. By Robert Haynes-Peterson

22

WHE RE I A P R I L 2018

Mezcaleria La Milagrosa

GOTHAM HAS A love affair with the speakeasy style of bar: Creative craft-cocktail spots, hidden behind unmarked doors or false storefronts such as laundromats and fortune tellers, appeal to a New Yorker’s sense of mystery and intrigue. More and more, though, you can also find a bar in hidden spots behind (or below) regular city restaurants. Call it a “practical” speakeasy, or perhaps “added value”: A restaurant should have a bar. But instead of putting it front and center, why not tuck it into an unused space and have some fun with it? Coffee shop by day, bar by night. That sounds like a winning combination in anyone’s book. Probably the most speakeasyish of the bars on the list, the new Patent Coffee/Patent Pending doesn’t rely on a makeshift espresso counter to hide the bar: The daytime spot is legit. A stylish blond wood-and-tile espresso bar greets NoMad

visitors with carefully sourced, single-origin coffees and tasty pastries. At 5 pm, the coffee shop closes. Ring the buzzer out front, and you’ll be lead through a secret door in the coffee shop, down winding stairs to a 30-seat “cocktail cave” with vintage turquoise banquettes and original brick walls. The drinks menu changes regularly, but the popular Radio Wave (tequila, mescal, agricole rhum, basil, Thai chili, lime and cucumber) will likely be available. The menu and cocktail names pay tribute to the fact that the building used to be both home and laboratory to famous inventor Nikola Tesla. Taking a different tack, the owners of the Upper East Side branch of NYC’s iconic 2nd Ave Deli decided to build up, rather than down when they opened 2nd Floor, a new bar and small-bites space. “The owners wanted to bring in a new group of people

2nd Floor’s Upper East Sider cocktail

who maybe aren’t so familiar with New York Jewish delis,” says Beverage Director Jason Jeffords, who cut his bar teeth managing the iconic Downtown cocktail bar Pegu Club. You can enter the large space via an outside stairway, but it’s more fun to come up through the service stairs, “Goodfellas” style, from inside the deli. The cocktails are well-crafted and balanced, but Jeffords notes, “We didn’t want to take ourselves too seriously,” thus offering drinks that riff on both the location (The Upper East Sider) and the deli (Man-O-Manischewitz). You’ll also find a high-quality selection of Israeli wines on the menu. The early evening music is smooth jazz, but things pick up as a young crowd fills the spot on weekends. The Meatball Shop is one of those “only in NYC” success stories, now with seven locations serving up chef-driven, Instagram-worthy “balls” to hungry pilgrims from around the world. Meatball Shop Hell’s Kitchen opened last year, and Chef Daniel Sharp says the unused former kitchen in the space they took over made the perfect spot for a slightly hidden bar, now dubbed Sidepiece, tucked in behind the stairwell. Sharp notes the “tongue-incheek” menu reflects the fact “that we’re able to experiment on new food and drink here, then roll what works out to all of our locations. The bar was half for the customers, half for the cooks and bartenders to have some fun.” Try a Bobby Ballbanger (vodka, cara cara orange juice, vanilla syrup, cherry bitters) with an insanely good meatball fondue featuring bacon strips, mozzarella cubes and mini-chicken meatballs.

a winning combination

At the back of some Mexican groceries in town, you’ll find ladies cooking up tamales. At the back of La Milagrosa (which carries tasty house-made chorizo, salsas and and moles), you’ll find Mezcaleria La Milagrosa, the latest cool-kid party destination in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Built to resemble the interior of an old-time railcar with a Mexican vibe, the bar (which you enter through what looks like a large freezer door at the back of the shop) specializes in agave spirits (tequila, mescal, sotol), killer vinyl playlists and margaritas. You must call for a reservation, but even then, there most likely will be a wait. Go often enough, and you may score a secret phone number that gets you in faster. Speaking of lines, there are still lines nightly to get into the decade-old Please Don’t Tell or PDT. Hidden in the no-nonsense (but delicious) Crif Dogs, founder Jim Meehan initially bristled when people called PDT a “speakeasy” (this despite the fact you enter through a hidden door in the back of a phone booth), but over the years he learned to appreciate the trend the bar helped kick off. In the tiny, wood-paneled and taxidermied space, highly skilled bartenders craft elegant cocktails from an ever-changing menu. Start with an Old Fashioned, because you should. Then move to something like the Shipshape (a gin-andcitrus highball) while noshing on artisanal Crif Dogs designed by celebrity chefs like David Chang and Andy Ricker. How popular is PDT these days? Bar Director Jeff Bell and his team recently helped open a new branch in Hong Kong.

Along the way, you’ll pass Gapstow Bridge and the lush field known as Sheep Meadow.

The Cloisters This museum and its grounds, part of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will make you wonder if you’ve taken a time machine back to medieval Europe. Take the A train to W. 190th Street and walk along Margaret Corbin Drive to the museum, with a cloistered abbey and exquisite gardens that feel almost reverential.
