NYC is one of the most visited cities in the United States of America, frequently attracting tourists due to its fame and amazing city skylines. It is one of the largest economic hubs in the world, powered by the world-famous Wall Street. It is surprisingly racially and culturally diverse, and can be a cornucopia of experiences for even the most seasoned traveller or tourist. The city does not seem to run out of sightseeing sights; from the Statue of Liberty to Times Square to the Empire State Building, the city has numerous icons that are known to almost any tourist in the world. The city also serves as a good base for visiting nearby destinations such as Toronto, Philadelphia or Connecticut. Driving can be a nightmare in the city so taking public transport is advisable.

Crosby Str. Hotel
Amidst Soho there is an eleven storey hotel with 86 rooms. On the roof: a garden with melons, tomatoes, herbs and four araucana hens that lay hazy blue eggs. Chef de cuisine Anthony Paris and his guests in the Crosby Bar are pleased, not only with the fresh ingredients that are used but also with the five o'clock tea - very british, isn't it? Not only the bar but the whole Crosby Street Hotel was designed by interior architect and hotel owner Kit Kemp: coloured lampions, huge wing chairs and deep, candy-striped sofas, matching curtains, velvet and violet couches in the drawing room and classic white bedspreads. The latter remind of grandmotherly times in American country houses. And then there is the cinema with 100 seats, which screens selected films at 8pm on Sundays. Access is granted to hotel guests and those who book a dinner/cocktail/film-combination starting from 25 dollars. Rooms starting from 495 dollars per night.

Marketplace
In the Gothic halls of the Episcopal Church made of brown brick it's not church songs but cash that rings since March 2011. On three floors - designed by James Manour with white walls and black and white chessboard floor - New Yorkers and tourists shop designer clothes by Edwing D'Angelo, cosmetics by Thérapie and jewellery by Tina Tang. The gourmet market with sinful treats (catch word sandwiches by Jezalin's) attracts the crowd for a snack, and the subsidiary of the J. Sisters offers Brazilian bikini waxing sessions. The church which was erected in the mid-19th century was a disco hotspot in the 1980ies under the aegis of Peter Gatien. In 1983 Andy Warhol threw the opening party of the club. Immoral goings-on and high percentage drinks under the flickering strobe light were on the nightly agenda and the Odyssey House used the building on the corner of 20th Street and 6th Avenue for their drug rehabilitation programme.

Harlow
Some of the most sough-after tables are to be found in New York. And since the beginning of 2013 the city got even hotter: Richie Notar and Jim Pallotta have opened the Harlow on East 56th Street. Richie - who was born in Queens - knows what the New Yorkers want. He began his career as a busboy in Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell's Studio 54 where he skinned potatoes and chopped onions on a daily basis. This changed when he became chef and from that point on worked in the city's top restaurants. At Nobu he was appointed General Manager. Eventually he became Managing Partner. In 2011 he founded his own gastro group and hired Meyer Davis Studio for his first own business, the restaurant/salon/café project named Harlow in Midtown Manhattan. His designers created an oyster-shaped marble bar and an ivy wall in the winter garden. In the reception area you'll spot an original Andy Warhol and the dining tables are lighted by chandeliers from the 30s. What a hot spot!

Grand Central
The way to a man's heart is through his stomach - in the Grand Central Oyster Bar. At lunchtime workers, actors and tourists are standing in queues that almost reach to the platforms. All of them have one common goal: get a place at the counter under the waffle-slab ceiling and slurp some fresh oysters. The offer includes up to thirty different and alternating sorts of oysters daily. Then there is the Oyster Ramp close to the bar. A young couple is standing there in opposite corners of the Whispering Gallery and whispers oaths of love against the wall. That's nothing unusual as the room is constructed in a way that the reverberation of the words are transported into the other corner - without cell phone or facebook. And speaking of love: the Kissing Room of the Grand Central Station, officially entitled Biltmore Room, served as a connection point for the 20th Century Limited Trains until 1967. It connected New York with Chicago and transported known personalities and politicians. Reunion and kissing scenes at the arrival were common practice.
