hat do Jennifer Lopez and the Apollo 11 moon landing have in common? Lopez came into this world on July 24, 1969, in the Bronx; the Apollo astronauts left this world a week earlier on July 16. Only connect, as E. M. Forster wrote. Supernova Lopez returns to her hometown when she parties up a 50th-birthday storm at Madison Square Garden (p. 10). The anniversary of the lunar mission is also front and center on New Yorkers’ radar this month. There are commemorative exhibitions at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum and the New York Hall of Science. A retrospective of Pierre Cardin’s futuristic fashions blasts off at the Brooklyn Museum. And Christie’s New York auctions space memorabilia, including the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Timeline Book, the manual that sat between Neil Armstrong and “Buzz” Aldrin when they landed Eagle on the moon’s surface. How cool is that? The auction is July 18, with once-in-a-lifetime public viewing days July 11–17. Not to be missed as well are New York’s out-of-this-world alfresco dining and drinking spots (p. 12) and top-fl ight desserts for kids of all ages (p. 16). So, fasten your seat belts: Your adventure in NYC is about to begin.

Q: WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT THE CITY? WHY? A: One of the many

things I love about NYC is the ability to move around to and from many different neighborhoods quickly and easily while exploring the diversity that the Big Apple offers. Q: WHAT’S YOUR BEST TIP FOR VISITING NYC LIKE A LOCAL? A: Make sure you know

the train status, download your subway map (get familiar with alternative routes) and get ready to do a lot of walking. Get an attraction pass and make sure to visit your hotel’s concierge desk. They will recommend and direct you to places that will make your visit more memorable. Q: WHERE ARE SOME INTERESTING PLACES TO CAPTURE A GREAT SELFIE? EXPERT TIP

Brookfield Place is in one of the best sightseeing areas of the city. It offers a great selection of boutiques, luxurious stores, events and fine dining.

A: The High Line is a NYC must-visit spot. The elevated park and walkway offers great views to capture some of the best shots of the Lower West Side, Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Q: BEST PLACES TO TAKE KIDS OF ALL AGES? A: The American Muse-

um of Natural History is my first recommendation for kids not only for the richness of the museum’s displays, but also for its proximity to Central Park. After having fun at the museum, families can continue exploring in Central Park at its many attractions, including the zoo, the carousel, the lake and the playground—all in one place. Q: FOR A GUEST LOOKING FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN, WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND? A: Koreatown is one of

the most vivid neighborhoods in the city; it offers plenty of restaurants with an extensive range for every palate, as well as karaoke and pool halls within walking distance.

Jennifer Lopez has every right to say “It’s my party!” when she brings her world tour to Madison Square Garden this month. The multi-talent—actress, singer, dancer, producer—turns 50 on July 24, but who’s counting? Life is too good: Her video “Medicine” has 21.5 million views; A-Rod is her man; and, on June 3, the Council of Fashion Designers of America bestowed its Fashion Icon Award of 2019 on the New York native.

In broad daylight on a side street or by the light of the silvery moon on a rooftop, dining and drinking alfresco in NYC is an experience not to be missed. There’s something about summer that brings out the creativity in local chefs and mixologists and drives them to excellence. And consider this: With the skyline spread out before you or even just an intimate piece of it, there’s no denying where you are. So, make the most of the weather, the cuisine and the locale.

THE FOUR SEASONS RESTAURANT OUTDOOR TERRACE

New York real estate is all about location. And Rockefeller Center has lucked out in that department: It’s smack-dab in the center of Midtown. Diners seeking refreshment in this oasis, presided over by the gilded Prometheus statue, find it at breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. American faves include trendy avocado toast and buttermilk chicken bites to share. There’s even a menu just for kids.

Just because the stylish restaurant serves outdoors in warm weather doesn’t mean it sacrifices any of the high standards for which its cuisine is known. The terrace menu (which can also be enjoyed indoors at the bar) features a vegan cauliflower steak as a starter. For a main course, the choice can be between petit filet and crispy bass. And for dessert, cantaloupe granita melts on the tongue.

Dessert isn’t something that comes to mind when one thinks of a Chinese restaurant. A fortune cookie perhaps, or chunks of pineapple. But at this home of the hot pot recommended by the Michelin Guide, there’s a good-for-you dessert: grass jelly. Made with Chinese herbs, the jelly delivers a grown-up kick. It
