Start your morning off strong with a class at Barry’s Bootcamp (Park Ave South), where you’ll be sure to work up a sweat.
Next up, check out the Flower District (W 28th St between 6th & 7th Ave). You’ll have to get there early– the markets open around 5:00 AM and close up shop by noon.
Then head a few blocks south to peruse the stands of the Chelsea Flea Market (W 25th St between 5th & 6th Ave) for one of a kind vintage finds. This outdoor market is open year round on weekends.
Get Your Drink On
The most important meal of the day for any New Yorker: coffee. Walk down to Flatiron to grab a latte from Ralph’s, a New York staple. And for an afternoon cocktail, stop into Hillstone for Happy Hour. We recommend the crisp martini for a refreshing drink after a long day of activities.
Girls Gotta Eat
If you want to grab a casual bite, check out the original Shake Shack stand in Madison Square Park (you may recognize this location from its scenes in the movie Something Borrowed). During the warmer months, this park is a prime location for outdoor dining and people watching.
When in doubt, always go for pasta. Our neighborhood favorites for Italian are Scarpetta, Serra by Birreria and La Pecora Bianca.
If you’re looking for upscale fine dining, go to Cote for a Michelin star Korean barbecue experience or Eleven Madison Park for their world-renowned tasting menu– a true culinary experience for any foodie.
