New York

New York, N.Y.
What do see and do…

A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a walk around central park. This large public park boosts an impressive 843 acres and is visited by approximately twenty-five million visitors annually making it the most visited park in the United States.  While most of the park looks natural it has in fact been almost entirely landscaped (and was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux) and hosts an array of extensive walking tracks, several lakes, two ice-skating rinks, a wildlife sanctuary as well as some of the most beautiful grassy spots to park for a picnic.
Address: Bordered on the north by West 110th Street, on the west by Central Park West, on the south by West 59th Street, and on the east by Fifth Avenue.

The Box

Eat, drink and enjoy a show inside The Box. This theatre supper club located on the Lower East Side is reminiscent of New York’s 1920’s legendary concert saloons and burlesque halls. Intimate, eccentric and original an evening at The Box promises both surprise and spectacle saturated in rich history.
Members of The Box’s artistic board (that help develop new work) include a who’s who – Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Josh Lucas and Julia Stiles.

The Waverly

Try this new west village hot spot by Vanity Fair editor and Canadian expat Graydon Carter – opened conveniently just a few steps down from his townhouse. Don’t let the low-wattage lightening and piles of raggedy debonair touches fool you that this neighbourhood bistro is anything but super-exclusive – for the moment. Star sightings are plenty –Howard Stern and ladylove Beth Ostrosky were dining on the same night as Ralph Fiennes.
