Abundance For balletomanes, the annual Fall for Dance Festival has always been an embarrassment of riches. And the 10th-anniversary season is no exception, featuring 20 international dance companies at New York City Center. There’s something for everyone in the mix, including American Ballet Theatre’s classic “The Moor’s Pavane” (right, Sept. 30-Oct. 1), choreographed by José Limón to music by Henry Purcell and based on Shakespeare’s Othello. As a bonus this year, two free evenings of terpsichorean artistry in Central Park raise the curtain on the main festival. » The Delacorte Theater in Central Park, Sept. 16-17 (rain date Sept. 18); New York City Center, 131 W. 55th St., 212.581.1212, Sept. 25-Oct. 5

Supernova Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has called soprano Sarah Brightman (below) “my angel of music.” And for a time, she was more than that to him: The two were married between 1984 and 1990. But while the marriage may not have stood the test of time, the musical that Lloyd Webber created, with Brightman as his muse and leading lady in London (1986) and New York (1988), has. The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history. In the 20-odd years since her Phantom triumph, Brightman has sold 30 million albums. She now looks to the stars, with plans to fulfill her long-held dream of traveling to the International Space Station in 2015—but not before her Dreamchaser concert tour lands in NYC this month. » Radio

Homecoming Marc Chagall (1887–1985) comes home to New York in the Jewish Museum’s eagerly anticipated retrospective. Not that the Russianborn, Jewish artist has ever really left the city in which he sought and found exile during World War II. Chagall is much loved by New Yorkers, who are reminded of his humanity and humor every time they attend an event at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where his monumental twin murals, “The Triumph of Music” and “The Sources of Music,” hang in the lobby of the Metropolitan Opera House. What distinguishes the Jewish Museum’s exhibition is the historical context in which it places Chagall’s oeuvre. This is the first in-depth examination of a dark period in the artist’s career, dating from the rise of Fascism in the 1930s thru 1948 and characterized by works such as “The Juggler” (right, 1943). » Chagall: Love, War and Exile, The Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Ave., 212.423.3200, Sept. 15Feb. 2, 2014

A Diamond as Big as the Ritz Jewels are in the news—the theft of approximately $136 million worth of gems in Cannes, France, made headlines around the world in late July—and at the American Museum of Natural History, where the Kimberley Diamond (left) is on loan and temporary display in the Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems. Mined in South Africa in the 19th century, the flawless, champagne-colored rock was first cut from a rough 490-carat crystal. In 1921, it was further cut to 70 carats. Its current emerald shape, weight (55.08 carats) and length (1.25 inches) date from 1958. The Kimberley Diamond is in rare company at the museum, whose collection includes the 12-sided, uncut Patricia Emerald, which tips the scales at 632 carats; and the 2-billion-year-old, 563-carat Star of India, the world’s largest blue sapphire. What is the monetary value of all this natural beauty? Try priceless. » American Museum of Natural History, Central Park West, at W. 79th St., 212.769.5100, thru June 2014

Too Sexy for His Shirt? Actors have various ways of getting into character, but did Orlando Bloom go to extremes this past summer? The swashbuckling star, best known for The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchises, was caught by a paparazzo walking shirtless (accompanied by his son and dog) on a TriBeCa street during the July heat wave. Was this preparation for his Broadway debut this month in Shakespeare’s super-sexy, super-romantic Romeo and Juliet (right, with co-star Condola Rashad)? Or was he just cooling off? Odds are the British-born actors from a more decorous era who have preceded British-born Bloom as Romeo on Broadway—Maurice Evans (1935), Laurence Olivier (1940) and John Neville (1956)—kept their shirts on. » Romeo and Juliet, Richard Rodgers Theatre, 226 W. 46th St., 800.745.3000

Portraying a real-life person onstage has its challenges, something that Eric Anderson (right) is discovering in the biographical Broadway musical Soul Doctor, in which he embodies the late Shlomo Carlebach (1925-1994), the beloved “Singing Rabbi.” “As an actor, I always want to be as authentic as possible,” Anderson says. “So, the challenge for me is to be able to recreate Shlomo’s spirit and joy in a way that audiences who knew him can revisit and rediscover. But it’s also important to tell a story universal and theatrical enough that those who didn’t know him can still come away having been entertained and, hopefully, uplifted.” As to any similarities between the two men, this much is a given: “We both have epic beards.”

» Soul Doctor, Circle in the Square Theatre, 1633 Broadway, 212.239.6200

Stories to Tell Susan Stroman is one of Broadway’s busiest director/choreographers. This season, she has two musicals in the works, Big Fish (below) and Bullets Over Broadway, her spring collaboration with Woody Allen. “I am very lucky that the stories I get to tell are so diverse,” she says. “Yet they all celebrate America, and they’re all life-affirming. Because that is what musical theater is all about: being able to tell stories that are life-affirming.” In Big Fish, the lead character, Edward Bloom, played by Norbert Leo Butz, tells big-fish stories—whoppers— that are not so much fairy tales as they are exaggerations. They’re also the legacy Bloom passes on to his son. “Big Fish is definitely a father-son story, which I find unique in musical theater and something that will really appeal to men,” Stroman says. Her favorite song in the show is “Fight the Dragons,” sung by Bloom to his son. “A storyteller never dies. Bloom will always be there for his son because his son will always have his stories.” » Big Fish, Neil Simon Theatre, 250 W. 52nd St., 866.870.2717

Most jewelry designers work with gems, of course. But Tamsen Ann Ziff’s pieces truly seem to celebrate stones. Earrings of ammolite, tourmaline, opal and garnet, suspended magically in midair (below); a moonstone bracelet that lies like a path of scattered pebbles on the wrist; a necklace of sliced diamond discs, like tiny, flattened geodes—each one-of-a-kind creation suggests a child joyfully stringing together the pretty beads she’s found (Ziff eschews super sparkly cuts; instead, she’s big on bricolettes—drop-shaped, subtly faceted gems— and cabochons). At her gray-and-purple-hued boutique, jewels in their natural state reside in cabinets next to colorful, finished pieces—the designer’s literal touchstones on display. » Tamsen Z, 783 Madison Ave., 212.360.7840

Bodies in Motion After concentrating on painting during the early years of her career, Dorit Levinstein turned to sculpture to discover the sense of motion she felt was missing in her pictures. Of late, her focus has been a series of witty, exuberantly painted bronzes (such as “Tango,” left) whose undulating forms often reference and riff upon instantly recognizable paintings by Picasso, Matisse and Renoir. The highly labor-intensive pieces require welding and polishing before Levinstein can begin to paint them (“the fun part,” she calls it). But she always leaves small portions of the surface uncovered, to remind viewers of the beauty and power of the underlying bronze. » Eden Fine Art, 437 Madison Ave., 212.888.0177

Women of Parts Ruby Sky Stiler’s works seem tailor-made for a cultural world overrun with mash-ups: disjointed figures of foam/acrylic resin/ thermal adhesive that offer a mischievous, modern spin on classical statuary (note the vase next to the spliced lady in “Reclining Nude From Parts, Fig. 1,” above, 2012). Her new exhibit includes a pair of ceiling-skimming sculptures, a “transition in scale [that] started as an intuitive challenge to myself,” the artist says. “Sculpture on this monumental scale has an authoritative power.” » Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, 327 Broome St., 212.375.8043, Sept. 5-Oct. 6

Romancing the Stone

Throughout the 19th century, Orientalism—Western artists’ idealized (and often imaginary) views of the Middle East—were in vogue. Contemporary Turkish painter Taner Ceylan seeks to upend that genre with The Lost Paintings Series. In place of dignified poses, his subjects give us direct gazes (as does “Esma Sultan,” right, 2012); instead of exotic costumes, they wear modern uniforms; in place of erotic odalisques, bare bodies are depicted in unflinching, photorealistic style—and the nudity is often male, not female. “My gurus are the Old Masters,” Ceylan says. But there’s nothing old-fashioned about his deliberately disturbing, yet ultimately riveting, canvases. » Paul Kasmin Gallery, 515 W. 27th St., 212.563.4474, Sept. 18-Oct. 26

Owners of Hasted Kraeutler, a contemporary art gallery that is located in the heart of New York’s Chelsea art district. Sarah and Joseph share art works from the gallery’s outstanding roster of artists, including photographer Martin Schoeller, painter Kim Dong Yoo, and a sneak peek into photographer, Nick Brandt’s current exhibition.

Kim Dong Yoo Installation view


Martin Schoeller is an internationally known German artist, best known for his hyper-detailed close up photographs of celebrities. Based in New York, his photographs appear in The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Time, GQ, Esquire, and Vogue. Pictured below is an incredible portrait of Kanye West, and other famous subjects available include Justin Timberlake, Bill Murray, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, Jerry Seinfeld, Marc Jacobs, Tom Hanks, and Jon Bon Jovi, among others. Photographs range from $3,500 - $11,600.


Nick Brandt’s photographs feature stunning images of endangered African animals, which he photographs “in the same way I would a human being, watching for the right ‘pose’ that hopefully will best capture his or her spirit,” he says. Always “moving in close” he never uses a telephoto lens, because it is too impersonal. Prices of the photographs start at $4,500. An exhibition of Nick Brandt’s new photographs is currently on view. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm.

Mr. Popular Toshi’s Living Room (above)—a swanky Flatiron lounge—attracts quite the hip crowd. But for Toshi, the spot’s founder and namesake, “hip” wasn’t always his thing—and Toshi wasn’t always his name. After growing up unnoticed by the popular crowd, he left the West Coast, adopted his current alter ego (the name of the most well-liked kid from his school days) and started throwing killer parties in NYC. Now, he’s the center of attention—and a regular, ebullient presence at his very own cocktail pad. Stop by for nightly themed live music (9 p.m.; soul on Mon), order the Toshi (gin, lemon, bubbly) and get to know the new Mr. Popular. » Toshi’s Living Room, Flatiron Hotel, 1141 Broadway, lobby, 212.679.8002

Nightly live music … Iced cocktails in an ice bar … Latin flavor and late-night churros

Central and South America’s feisty flavors can be savored just south of Canal St. Los Americanos brings a cantina vibe and a wealth of piscos, mezcals, rums and tequilas within reach. The décor is delicioso: a mix between a retro diner (red Formica tabletops, green checkered floors, sculpted aluminum accents) and someone’s great aunt’s living room (splashes of floral wallpaper, red-tinted light shades, window blinds, assorted vintage tchotchkes). Ask the strapping Latin bartenders to whip you up an intoxicatingly silky Miraflores (below, hibiscus-infused pisco, lemon, simple syrup, egg white) or stumble in late at night for sinful, dulce de leche-dipped churros. » Los Americanos, 305 Church St., 212.680.0101

Ice, Ice, Baby A hot new bar just hit Midtown, but inside it’s cold as ice. Minus 5 Ice Bar (left), a luxury watering hole with an interior made of ice, is cool to the core—refrigerated, as the name suggests, to minus 5 degrees Celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit). Upon entry, guests are wrapped in parkas (or lush faux furs, for VIPs) and ushered through a meat locker-esque door into an arctic wonderland. Everything is frozen, from the walls to the bar to the seating (draped in deer hides). Even the goblets are shaped from ice (calm those frostbite fears; you get gloves, too), ensuring your premium vodka cocktail goes down chilly. For those who crave bragging rights, fluttering photographers document all the polar pleasure. Get ready for a cold front. » Minus 5 Ice Bar, New York Hilton Midtown, 1335 Sixth Ave., ground fl., 212.757.4610

Hot Italian Tony May, formerly the owner of the celebrated San Domenico restaurant, brings his prestigious name to E. 26th St. SD26 (left) is both downtown and decidedly hip, with a gorgeous dark lounge and round red cushion stools for sipping cocktails. The spacious dining room is equally inviting, with an open kitchen, colorful art installations and an attentive staff. The menu includes salumeria and formaggeria appetizers (think pistachio-studded bologna and a semisoft whole cow’s milk cheese); other starters include a light chilled tomato soup with burrata (far left). Pastas could not get more creative (sea urchin ravioli) and wine-braised beef cheeks had the taste buds singing arias all evening long. For fun after dinner, have a glass of wine in the lounge with the do-it-yourself pour, at different servings and price points. Salute! » SD26, 19 E. 26th St., 212.265.5959

Frankie & Johnnie’s is one of those Manhattan steak houses that offers not only classic steaks but also colorful history. The original spot, still on W. 45th St., was a speakeasy during Prohibition. The second location, on W. 37th St., has an interesting past as well, having been the town house of legendary actor John Barrymore: One can choose to dine in the “Barrymore Room” on the restaurant’s second floor, formerly the actor’s library, complete with grand fireplace. The menu, too, retains the timeless simplicity of the great steakhouse concept, with offerings that include fresh oysters, a succulent shrimp cocktail and chopped salad for starters; and prime, dry-aged steaks (right), as well as several fish dishes, veal chops and more, for entrées. Don’t forget sides such as thick stalks of asparagus and au gratin potatoes. Frankie and Johnnie’s is an institution in NYC, and a welldeserved one at that. » Frankie & Johnnie’s, 32.

While in New York, no need to lament that your golf game will get rusty. At Golf Manhattan (left), you can practice your stroke, take lessons and even grab lunch at the small bar while watching sports on a flat-screen television. Located on the third floor of a Midtown office building, Golf Manhattan gets an impressive clientele of golf fans, whether there to improve their game or brush up for a weekend tournament. The space offers two quiet virtual golfing rooms cushioned with faux greens (as is the glass-topped bar), along with a small room for private lessons (which can be had with Tom Sutter, a top PGA teaching professional). Client Hoagy Carmichael Jr. recently enthused, “There’s no place in New York like it.” Enough said. » Golf Manhattan, 108 W. 39th St., Ste. 310, 212.685.4804

If you are in the Wall Street area and in need of serious R&R, think about The Setai Club & Spa (above). The unisex spa offers exotic skincare treatments, such as the Moroccan Hammam Experience (an olive-soap exfoliation, thermal body soak, red-clay wrap and rosewater massage). Setai has two one-day pass options: The Aqua Grotto Pass ($65) offers access to the changing rooms (full-size mahogany lockers, robes, slippers) along with a mineral marble hydro Jacuzzi, Finnish sauna and an aromatherapy-infused steam room. With the VIP Access Pass ($100), you get all the benefits mentioned above, plus access to the Fitness Center and Yoga Studio.

House Party What do you get when the co-founder of the party-planning firm Fête sets up shop? An enticing collection of lifestyle objects from classic to nearly bizarre. Thanks to Jung Lee’s new eponymous home store (left), no one has to be tempted to steal the centerpiece, because they can purchase it, like a law-abiding citizen. The goods are arranged according to room type, which helps customers visualize just where they should put that gilded Moroccan lantern or a new set of blood-red acrylic goblets. In addition to the vast array of conversation pieces and glassware curated from all over the world, there is quirky wall art and every kind of serving dish imaginable. One trip here and a former plain Jane of entertaining will transform into the hostess with the mostest. » Jung Lee, 25 W. 29th St., 212.257.5655

Phone Home Your treasured smartphone just got even smarter. Vertu, the luxury mobile phone manufacturer, is amping up its retail presence to match the cutting-edge technology it is known for. At its new Midtown East boutique, Vertu’s extensive line of phones and accessories is available in chic surroundings. An illuminated glass facade greets patrons upon entry, and the interior is all sleek lines and elegant details, reflective of the product. The handmade phones (above) come in uncommonly luxurious materials—stainless steel, titanium, crystal sapphire screens. The store’s seating is equally luxe, but—happily—made of more comfortable stuff. » Vertu, 610 Madison Ave., 212.371.8701

It does us good to stray from the main shopping drags once in a while, and Maiyet, which has opened its first freestanding store (below) on SoHo’s charming, cobblestoned Crosby St., is sure to beckon. Known in fashion circles for its distinct brand of luxury womenswear, the company also partakes in socially conscious design collaborations—recently, it announced plans for a factory in Varanasi, India, intended to revive a 500-year-old weaving industry and the city’s economy. Good style, good graces, what’s not to love? With the new boutique, it gets even better: The minimalist space is punctuated by antiqued mirrors, dangling Edison bulbs, cashmere-covered dressing room doors and a ficus tree. But the clothes (right) really take center stage— sophisticated with bohemian accents. » Maiyet, 16 Crosby St., 212.343.9999

All About Kate

high school in the 1990s, there are definitely fashion trends she regrets, but what she also loved about the era was that “it embraced both grunge and minimalism.” Taking her cues from these two fashion traits, Kate is now creating effortless looks, combining tweed and lace, sheer blouses and denim, keeping it both simple and stunning. Juxtaposing fabrics and patterns represents her “on the go” lifestyle today, but it was


She creates jewelry, designs CLOTHES, is a fashion industry spokesperson and—oh yes— also stars in A-list films. kate bosworth is one eclectic fashionista. by brianne hughes her love of clean lines that made her become a Calvin Klein model in 2008 and a spokeswoman for the spring 2008 Coach bag line. When it comes to favorite designers, she is frequently seen on the red carpet in Valentino because it works for her pencil-slim frame. Kate is also a fan of French designers Isabel Marant and Vanessa Bruno. In October 2010, Kate and stylist Cher Coulter launched, an offshoot of, which allows members to sign up and have a personal jewelry style determined for them. Each month, members are able to browse pieces online that work with their designated style. The idea of everyday jewelry at everyday prices came about when Bosworth realized that the “price point for innovative jewelry started at $400.” Kate and Cher have managed to make jewelry affordable ($40 average) and still create vintageinspired pieces that they themselves would wear. While “never at a loss for inspiration,” Bosworth admits that travel plays a role in the pieces chosen for design. She gets ideas from the different architecture she sees in other cities. A trip to Seoul, South Korea, in 2012 inspired bracelets, necklaces and earrings for her line.

Even other celebrities are noticing Kate’s emergence into the fashion world. This past July, Bosworth was a guest judge for the season premiere of Heidi Klum’s reality show, Project Runway. Being true to her personal style, she kept it simple, wearing a black minidress. But Bosworth has admitted, “the fashion world feels more normal to me when I’m [in] it.” She is also a regular at runway shows for fashion brands such as Theory, Altuzarra and, of course, TopShop. Kate says she is “attracted to a counterbalanced femininity/masculinity,” which is evident in the short film The Road to Coachella, directed by her fiancé, Michael Polish, made as a promotional device for the Coachella Music Festival and featuring her line from TopShop. With clothing companies looking to attract customers via festival lines, Bosworth was the right choice to collaborate with TopShop, especially after they had a successful “Winter Wonderland” campaign in December 2012. Kate helped design 16 pieces for TopShop, such as “a faded cropped Tshirt with loose distressed boyfriend jeans, slung low and a plaid shirt tied round the waist. The choice of a suede material on the laser-cut pieces was critical because it gave them a tougher edge,” she has said, which is needed when camping out at a summer music festival in California. Says Kate, “I’m

hese days, the name Kate is synonymous with fashion. And we are not talking here about a certain duchess, but our own American Hollywood celebrity, actress Kate Bosworth. Bosworth, at 31, is making a serious crossover into the fashion world with sell-out fashions for TopShop and jewelry lines for Fashion is clearly in her blood, as Kate’s father was an executive for the ladies’ clothing store Talbots and taught her “what quality meant and the importance of it,” she has noted. But her personal fashion style has also taken a page from an itinerant childhood, bouncing between the East and West coasts, going to school in both conservative New England and liberal San Francisco. Born in Los Angeles in January 1983, Bosworth admits that since she was in

always on the hunt for a combination of comfort and classic,” which is why her TopShop line sold out several pieces, in the company’s stores and on its website, in a matter of hours. “To gain learning experience from the TopShop design team has been a great opportunity for me,” says Bosworth. Designing clothing for a music festival seemed natural to Kate, who is a music lover at heart. Her favorite bands, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, represent the style that she has created for herself: timeless. She admits that music “can give you a more emotional experience than film” and often listens to various artists “to start understanding the character” she is about to take on. Kate’s fashion style is similar to the way she chooses to keep her film career diverse. While she began acting in small roles in 1997, it wasn’t until 2002’s Blue Crush that she made the Hollywood scene. She is not afraid to experiment with her movie roles and move between a typical “townie” to “grittier roles in Wonderland” (2003) and then back to lighter fare like Win a Date With Tad Hamilton (2004). For her latest film, Homefront, due out in November, Kate takes on a more serious role as a methadone addict. The film co-stars Winona Ryder and James Franco and shows her in a far different light than her usual glamorous red-carpet look. Bosworth’s chameleonlike ability onscreen parallels her life and style offscreen. Her ability to morph from surfer girl to New Englander to rock festival grunge is a testament to her flexibility. She is a movie star, a fashion innovator and a style icon who consistently showcases how fashion is never one style. “Fashion represents who we are,” says Kate. In that case, Kate is very well represented, indeed.

Accent on Accessories Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world—it’s hard to get by just upon one style. But why should you, when treasures from countries near and far are on offer behind the sparkling windows of New York City stores? Come with us, intrepid explorer, as we embark on a global shopping spree to adorn both home and person. By Troy Segal

ceramic CASA Sixty years

ago, Lladró (500 Madison Ave., 800.785.3490) introduced the world to Spanish painted porcelain. Now, it’s launching a new line: lamps (left) with translucent porcelain shades and drops.

stately homes Designer Paul Smith loves tweaking his native England’s classic styles— as in the “Faded Glory Red” rug (right) that riffs on Victorian wallpaper, for The Rug Company (989 Third Ave., 212.644.9200).

Asian Arts Associated with spare styles and minimalist interiors, the Japanese may not have much adornment— but what they do have is choice, and often practical to boot. Painted paper/silk screens, like this ca. 1875 specimen (above), one of a pair at Mallett (929 Madison Ave, 212.249.8783), historically served as room dividers or as

portable wall decorations. Everyday items typically are decorated with symbolic images. This traditional-style enameled teapot (below), whose flat shape allows tea leaves to expand evenly, is adorned with waves, in homage to the famed ocean prints of the artist Hokusai. It’s at Le Palais des Thés (156 Prince St., 646.513.4369).

global bulbs Light up your life

with a bulb that’s colored (top) or has an old-time, visible loop carbon filament (nice with antiques or an industrial-chic décor). Just Bulbs (220 E. 60th St., 212.888.5707) carries a variety of retro styles, plus lights that fit European or British sockets.

Subcontinental comfort Thick rugs, deep divans, billowing curtains: If any land conjures up images of lush relaxation, it’s India. A richly colored, intricately embroidered velvet pillow (above), such as the ones handcrafted by Indian artisans at bazaarlike ABC Carpet & Home (888 & 881 Broadway, 212.473.3000), provides a perfect way to relive the days of the Raj.

Swiss Ingenuity

Switzerland is synonymous with watchmaking—and one of its oldest firms (founded 1848) is still ticking away: OMEGA (711 Fifth Ave., 212.207.3333). Those who hold horology close to their hearts laud the timepieces for their state-of-the-art technology—sports watches are the firm’s specialty— and snazzy style. From the delicate diamond-paved Ladymatic to the dashboardinspired Speedmaster Racing, the precious tickers reside gallery-style in illuminated cases (above).

ciao, baby How to define Italian moda? Sleek,

yet relaxed (think of those supple Armani suits). Never trying too hard, but full of fun (case in point: Pucci’s psychedelic prints). And above all, glorying in sensuality, in the way materials feel against the skin or delight the eye. Leather, for instance: It’s often textured or treated to a fine softness, as in bags (above) from the skins maestros at Furla (furla .com; similar styles are at Bloomingdale’s, 1000 Third Ave., 212.705.2000), color-blocked to provide a little original pop. Speaking of flash, Italian gents (unlike uptight gents from other lands) aren’t afraid to wear jewelry. But they keep it elegant and understated, as in these 18-karat gold cuff links with the subtlest of sparkling citrine, pyrite doublet or quartz from Ippolita (796 Madison Ave., 646.664.4240).

Trump SoHo Library

Style Metropolis New York City is the fashion capital of the world. Beyond our Garment District, sprawling designer stores and seasonal runway shows, the natives have a certain reputation for stylishness, too. We caught up with Eric Valencia, concierge at the fashionable Trump SoHo, to tap into his seasoned knowledge on style and shopping in the Big Apple. “Walking around, you’ll see everything from power suits to hipsters, Manolo Blahniks to TOMS,” Valencia says. “When I think Uptown, I think ‘classic’—check out the Tom Ford flagship, for sophisticated and sleek menswear.” While in SoHo, ladies should stop into Journelle, “a very chic, customer-service-oriented lingerie boutique, complete with robes in the dressing rooms, so you can go in and out while maintaining comfort and modesty.” Downtown has always been known for its eclectic style vibes, so Valencia suggests visitors go for the cliché and pick up an I Heart NY T-shirt when they’re around Canal St. “As cheesy as it is, it’s a necessity.” Rather adorn your home? He recommends “ABC Carpet & Home, a fantastic TIPS FROM: décor store.” And while there is a lot of high fashion Eric Valencia, Concierge, Trump SoHo, in the city, there is plenty of room for the crazy factor, 246 Spring St., according to Valencia: “Once I sat next to a couple at 212.842.5500 dinner who were wearing matching sequined pants.

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps


Oldest Homestead (left) in the Meatpacking neighborhood comes with a generous slice of NYC history. The steak house opened in 1868, making it one of the oldest restaurants in the United States. It was originally named the Tidewater Trading Post, so called because the waters of the Hudson River would wash up to its doors during high tide, and merchants would often eat there before setting sail for the big sea.

The city’s smallest park is on W. 71st St., between West End and Amsterdam aves. Wedged between two brownstones, it boasts several benches and a small garden. Former Parks Commissioner Henry J. Stern wanted to give it a more colorful


name than “71st Street

Among luminaries past and present who have graced the halls of the prestigious Upper East Side Carlyle Hotel (below) are Princess Diana, Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson, President Kennedy (who reportedly had dalliances with Marilyn Monroe there), Frank Sinatra, Woody Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Steve McQueen, and, more recently, Tom Cruise, George Clooney and Katie Holmes.

Septuagesimo Uno,

Plot” and so named it Latin for 71.

Chelsea Morning

The cheery neighborhood of Chelsea (above) started as a farm bought in 1750 by Thomas Clarke, a retired British army captain. His grandson Clement Clarke Moore became a developer and began adding to the farm and building homes on the adjacent areas and, hence, Chelsea was born.

Sixth Avenue’s name was officially changed to “Avenue of the Americas” in 1945 by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia to honor the unity of the Western Hemisphere and the fostering of PanAmericanism. The name was chosen to celebrate the many Latin American consulates that were then housed around the Rockefeller Center area.

 In New York the sky is bluer, the grass is greener, the girls are prettier, “ the steaks are thicker, the buildings are higher and the streets are wider, the air is finer, than the sky, or the grass, or the girls, or the steaks, or the air of any place else in the world.”—Edna Ferber, Buttered Side Down 88
