Here’s how to enjoy Flight to New York City for..
The Morgan Library & Museum, the early 20th century Italian Renaissance-style building that was once financier Pierpont Morgan’s hideaway, is one of the city’s most underrated institutions. The grand interior brims with rare manuscripts and artefacts. Morgan’s book-lined study with its secret staircases is the centrepiece.
Unwind under the vaulted ceiling of the nearby Grand Central Terminal’s equally majestic Oyster Bar, where you can indulge in a vast selection of bivalves.
Wander through Gotham West Market, the artisanal food hall at the bottom of a sleek new Hell’s Kitchen residential development. Here, you can enjoy a progressive feast by slurping up classic shoyu noodles at Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop, followed by smoked eel croquettes at El Colmado. Cap off your visit with black olive and cucumber lamb tartare at Cannibal (what's this, a care/restaurant/bar? FROM SPHM: it’s one of the food outlets within the Market, same us Ivan Ramen and El Comado)
Walk it all off at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, where history and science converge. Don’t miss the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home of NASA’s pioneering orbiter Enterprise – or the world’s oldest existing nuclear missile-carrying submarine.
Just across Central Park lies the glittering Lincoln Center arts complex. Choose from performances by the likes of the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera and New York City Ballet, and settle in for a night of captivating entertainment.
Have a family feast at Midtown East’s Rotisserie Georgette, created by Georgette Farkas – chef Daniel Boulud’s former public relations director – where the star is undoubtedly the French-style roast chicken. Organic farm chicken is paired with sauces like tomato-tarragon-paprika, and served with sides such as stuffed baked potato with Parmesan.
