[Travels] Touring New York City


There’s so much to do in NYC so where I begin? 

Romantic sunset from the Top of The Rock -Rockefeller Center

I spent most of the time touring the city and seeing as much as I could, shopping to beautiful stores. Weather was incredible! I was not able to visit everything of course, but I could explore this amazing town!

The view from the Top of The Rock -Rockefeller Center is amazing

Behind the scenes of the latest campaign shoot for Maybelline New York, the World's No.1 makeup brand, at the Top of The Rock -Rockefeller Center. Can you recognize the Top models?

Watching the City Game at The Cage, the best Manhattan’s outdoor basketball court (West 4th Street Courts). My husband also made a match...so cool!

Magnolia Bakery is a sweet shopping pit-stop during your trip to NYC... without any doubt these are the best cupcakes I've ever tasted. I treated myself to a chocolate buttercream cupcake with a smooth velvety texture and dark chocolate flavor!

The famous shoe shining shop on Fulton Street @Broadway managed by three brothers from Ecuador who arrived in New York in 1985: German, Raul and Alejandro. Vanity Fair interviewed all of them. They are very friendly!

At Freeman's, a homespun American restaurant at the end of a nondescript Lower East Side alley. This is by far my favorite American restaurant in NYC: simple, rustic, and inspired by old world traditions.


Breakfast at the Palm Court of the Plaza Hotel: made-from-scratch buttermilk Pancakes and Benedict Oak Smoked Salmon served with american coffee. Here were filmed scenes from cult films like Home Alone (“Mamma ho perso l’aereo” in italian), one of my preferred movies when I was a child

Shopping @Tiffany & Co store on the Fifth Avenue is a definite must during your stay in the Big Apple, remember “beautiful design makes a beautiful life” - Charles Lewis Tiffany



Walking at Central Park

I enjoyed my time at the Gugenheim Museum. If you like contemporary Art, I also suggest you to visit the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and the New Museum of Contemporary Art

Sunset on the rooftop bar of Gansevoort @Meatpacking. The 360-degree panoramic view is breathtaking. You can see the High Line park and the skyline of New York City over the Hudson River. The Meatpacking District is the most glamorous neighborhood in Manhattan. Here, the city that never sleeps really never sleeps! 
Another really cool place across the river is the terrace bar atop the Wythe Hotel @Williamsburg, one of Brooklyn's most popular and exciting neighborhoods, with the best Manhattan view!
