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 Ritz-Carlton
Rising the curtains and looking into the green. Amidst Manhattan. That's possible in the Ritz-Carlton New York Central Park.

Both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler put the Ritz 2001 on their high score lists. Rooms starting from 795 dollars without, 895 dollars with view on the Central Park.

What to see in New York

What to see in New York
Life in Harlem is taking place around 125th Street. The Apollo Theater has been there for almost 100 years. The Aloft Harlem was opened in the spring of 2011 in a side street. The Apollo was a burlesque theater at its beginnings in 1914 and later developed into an Afro-American music center. Celebrities like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday have both started their career on this stage. Louis Armstrong, Diana Ross, Jackson 5 and Marvin Gaye have all been there. And the theatre still supports young talents. Between 26 January and 26 October new voices show their paces each Wednesday on Amateur Night. The audience may applaud enthusiastically or boo properly - depending on how much they enjoyed the performance. Brand new in the neighbourhood, however, is the Boutique-Hotel Aloft Harlem of the portfolio of the Starwood group. It is the first Harlem-hotel for about 45 years. It has 124 rooms and the trendy WXYZ Bar. Rooms per night starting from 149 dollars.

Abc Carpet & Home
In the six-storied furniture store on Broadway 888 the carpets pile up on the wooden floor, the glasses are densely packed in metal racks - everything in high rooms and under large chandeliers. In between: couples strolling around with their personal shopper searching for the perfect mirror for the loft or the organic bed linen for the bedroom. Yuppies on the hunt for a new couch or moneyed grey-haired ladies on a stroll through the tableware-department. In the branch on the opposite side of the street on Broadway 881: carpets of every kind and size on three floors. Old or new, design or antique. The deeper the buyer probes into the store, the more favourable the carpet gets. In the basement there's a constant clearance sale. Abc Carpet & Home has devoted itself with its products to sustainability. Special icons make the buyer aware of the source of the material and the way of manufacturing. Not to be neglected: the Abc Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new restaurant in the mega furniture store.

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!
