You've heard it before, but we will say it again. New York City is the city that never sleeps. The amount of energy radiating from each of the five boroughs is electrifying. For decades trends have been founded here, inspiration happened upon, and people from all walks of life have meshed to create something of a cultural capital.

We love New York City. So we have compiled some of our favorite stomping grounds for you. Whether your visit is pleasantly brief or impressively lengthy, consider incorporating some of these local gems into your schedule.
This market has an array of sweet and savory shops for locals and travelers to browse through. Specifically though, venture into The Lobster Place. They have wholesale seafood at amazing prices and serve lobster bisque in a bread bowl...yum.
If something sweet is at the forefront of your mind, indulge in Fat Witch Bakery brownies. They are monstrous, not to mention to die for.
If you're staying at The Maritime Hotel pick a day to rise early and take a stroll across the High Line with a warm cup of Blue Bottle Coffee made to order. This is one extraordinarily unique park that was built on a retired elevated train track. Rather than tear it down, inventive locals have transformed something once deemed useless into a community hub.
Combined, the series of rotating exhibitions at the Chelsea art galleries create an ever changing, life like landmark. One that never ceases to draw the curious and art loving travelers. Chelsea is alive with creativity.
Rise to the top and enjoy cocktails and more in the rooftop bar at the Gansevoort Park Avenue. This skyhigh oasis offers six distinct venues where fashionable patrons take in unhindered views of the Empire State Building and other iconic New York City landmarks.
If you are looking for something more discreet, visit TBA in Brooklyn for danceable electronic music with that underground party feel.
Everyone has 'that one spot' they revisit time and again. Well, here are two of ours.
Basque in the New York City sun with East River views at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. This is the perfect place to have a picnic and relax. If you are looking for a little more activity, trot on over to the entrance of Pier 1 for bike rentals. You'll soon find yourself zooming past pedestrians with nothing short of a grin on your face.
NYC is a shopping destination. You can find absolutely everything and anything in the Big Apple. Get inspired by our favorite New York shopping spots:
Head uptown to the "must stop by" Bergdorf's, for a little quintessential 5th Avenue shopping...pricey and fabulous. Then continue down 5th to see the shops at Rockefeller Plaza at 49th & 5th. A quick stop at Saks Fifth Avenue but definitely a walk by the Saks Windows is always fun!
Take the subway downtown to HousingWorks in Chelsea for a check on what NYC's best second-hand store has to offer and to do some good with your shopping dollars.
After all that walking with bags in your hands, take an Uber for a ride back to your boutique hotel in style.
HopStop.com is our go to for quick and easy directions and getting around by subway, bus or on foot. Taking a taxi this time of year can be time-consuming unless you have lots of time and texting to do.
