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.

Andaz 5th Avenue
Checking in at the reception - that is so yesterday! Checking in via handheld pc in the living room next to the baking oven or while you're already on the way into your room - that's today! The place of action: the Andaz 5th Avenue located at the biggest shopping street of the city.   The hotel with 184 rooms - situated in one of New York's largest department stores in history and former headquarters of Tommy Hilfiger on 41st street - is part of the Hyatt family. And in co-operation with Tony Chi it shows what creative, generous living means. Here, liberty can be found everywhere: no matter if it's in the open restaurant and its entrance that leads through the kitchen which only uses products by New Yorker farmers. Or in the 30-square-metre large rooms with 3,65-metre hight ceilings and freestanding bathtubs. Or the art works by Nick Hornby & Co that adorn the living rooms. The whole hotel inspires you to give free rein to your own individuality. And it works. Rooms atarting from 395 dollars.

Whitney Museum
At the moment the following artists are still exhibited in the Whitney Museum of American Art in Marcel Breuer's building on Madison Avenue: Alexander Calder, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning, Keith Haring, Man Ray, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol - the great American artists.   Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, who is a sculptor herself as well as a patron of the arts, has created a space in New York for art from the 20th and 21st century with the establishment of the museum in 1930. In these days, she exhibited 700 art pieces from her private collection. By now, the number of pieces has grown to a total of more than 18,000. In the near future, she moves into the Meatpacking district. The foundation for the new museum area, designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, is laid in 2011. From 2015 on the house will welcome its guests in Gansevoort Street between West Street and High Line. But until this day has come, Calder, Haring and Co can be seen on Madison Avenue. Entrance is 18 dollar.

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.

Secret Dining
The concept is as simple as brilliant: cooking and pleasure fans, from professionals to lay persons, meet up for dinner in a private ambience. The invitation to a night full of feasting, savouring, cooking, chatting and discussing comes by e-mail.   On site - today a loft in Midtown, tomorrow a loft in Brooklyn, the day after tomorrow an apartment in Chelsea - it's all about talking, gossiping and enjoying. The menu is mostly a surprise. What we know: the Noble Rot serves good wine, oftentimes with artistic accompaniment and the Brooklyn Edible Social Club provides for five-course menus. And what's behind Apt4 Food & Wine - apart from delicious dishes - has to be discovered by all the adventurous persons among you. What you need to bring to those eating events are openness, curiosity, appetite and your wallet. Because although secret dining somehow resembles an invitation to a dinner at friends, it's not for free.
