The Cloisters
The silence is untypical of the usually very noisy New York: Here in the garths of The Cloisters you see birds tweeting, daffodils blooming, arcades giving shade. The garths of The Cloisters, the branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in Fort Tryon park on Hudson River in Washington Heights, are open to the public daily (except Mondays), as a haven of tranquility and recreation. Everyday at 1pm there are guided garden tours. The focus of the exhibitions in The Cloisters is the art and architecture of medieval Europe from the 12th to 15th century. The collection comprises roughly five thousand exhibits, including several ones from the time around 800 AD as well. The building itself is a mosaic of original parts of five French monasteries and an idea of the carver George Grey Barnard. In 1925, John D. Rockefeller bought Barnard's collection and donated it to the Met. Central show piece of the museum is the Mérode-altar of the Flemish painter Robert Campin. Admission: 20 Dollars.

W Hotel
Yes, the W Hotel New York near the Rockefeller Center has beds available - in 688 rooms, suits and Spa-suits, equipped with all the trimmings (including Munchie-Box and internet). However, that's only a minor matter in this house. In the W Hotel New York on Lexington Avenue the main focus lies on partying - just as in all other W Hotels in New York and the rest of the world. The concept of the house: the bar is more important than the room. More precisely, on Lexington this means: the center of the illustrious goings-on is called Whiskey Blue. The name is not by chance. The bar in the design of a typical men's club has the biggest selection of whiskeys in the whole city. The golden glasses sparkle whenever their owners take them up. It smells of Single Malt Scotch and Bourbon. The W Hotel New York is open every day from 4:30 pm, on weekends starting from 6 pm. The bar closes between 2 and 4 am. Then, after all, one might indeed consider taking a hotel room (booking prices start from 229 dollars per night). They even have really comfortable names: Cozy, Spectacular, Marvelous and Wow. By the way, Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber designed the lounge with the dim light and dark brown furniture, if this is still relevant after all the whiskey.

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.

The Flea
More than 100 sellers offer antiquities, furniture, clothes, jewellery, art and kitsch at the Williamsburg Waterfront on Sundays in the summer between 10 am and 5 pm, with a view on New York's skyline for free. Surrounded by the smell of fresh tacos, pizzas and coffee, sometimes accompanied by a live band, now and then interrupted by a philosophical discussion or brave bargaining. When the city turns cold and grey - from November to March - the flea market moves from the Waterfront into the former Williamsburg Savings Bank, the second biggest building in Brooklyn, on the junction of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenue. The Flea's origin lies in Williamsburg's Brooklyn Flea, which has been meeting point for browsing people each Saturday from April to November since 2008. From the end of May 2011 onwards, Saturday will be an excursion day in Williamsburg as well: with Smorgasburg, the Flea-founders Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby, are launching a gourmet market with food and farmer stands as well as houseware.
