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.

Central Park
In the middle of New York, a green heart is beating - the Central Park. It's as important to the New Yorkers as the green Prater is to the Viennese: a green oasis amidst the city, space for recreation and fun. Central Park stretches on 3,4 square kilometres from 59th to 110th street. The area comprises lakes, forests, hills, sculptures, sporting fields and playgrounds. And of course there are restaurants. One of them is the Loeb Boathouse at the lake. Since 1954 the guests rent rowboats and Venetian gondolas for a ride on the lake in order to watch birds on their way southwards or sit on the terrace and have a lobster roll and a jumbo crab cake. Visitors who'd consider a rowing trip too sedative can try out one of the intertwined running routes, baseball fields or attend one of the rock concerts. There are also sculptures of America's explorer Christopher Columbus, the Danish poet Hans Christian Andersen and buildings like the Belvedere Palace at the Vista Rock.

Pearl & Ash
The Pearl & Ash on Bowery Street in New York is the new place for endless parties with sea creatures. The persons behind the concept? Chef Richard Kuo, general manager Branden McRill, and sommelier Patrick Cappiello. Together they throw maritime-themed parties in their restaurant. Richard Kuo - who previously cooked at wd~50, Corton and the Scandinavian-inspired Pop-ups Frej - now serves scallops, ray, octopus and tea-marinated salmon at Pearl & Ash. They come with Brussel sprouts and long beans. For dessert, he surprises with coffee parfait, Fernet Branca ice cream and sweet mini portions for the little appetite after the opulent meal. The cocktails are named after historical events of the area, yet, taste contemporary. All this is framed by wooden frames pinned to the walls, with motifs such as Kodak cameras (for taking pictures) or boxes filled with moss (rather for looking only). Typically New York!

High Line Hotel
You won't find Harry Potter or any wizards flying on their brooms in the recently opened The High Line Hotel in New York. Although some students in flowing capes would fit right into this Gothic building in Chelsea: built in 1895, original lead glass windows, pine tree floors and open fires. The furniture in the hotel - which used to be a seminary dorm - is way more comfortable than the one from the wizard's college described in J.K. Rowling's novels. The High Line park is right in front of the door and the galleries in Chelsea are a stone's throw away. While the hotel might seem to stem from a bygone era (vintage furniture, antique carpets, art hanging at the walls), you'll find lots of modern gimmicks from the 21st century: check-in via iPad, coffee by Intelligentsia from Chicago and the 300 square metre Hoffman Hall which is used for runway shows, photo shoots, weddings and cocktail receptions. But a magical flair remains: while standing in front of the two metres high fireplace in the wood-panelled room which used to be the cafeteria, it almost seems like a more mature and styled version of Harry Potter could turn the corner any second.
